In short: our hybrid-loving, overly creative minds looking for a viral hit have gone and just ruined Thanksgiving for us. We've already ruined pumpkin spice for everyone by sticking it in our lattes and every other food product, do we have to go ahead and throw Thanksgiving foods in the dumps of overly saturated seasonal foods?
At the James Beard Awards on Monday, we attempted to avoid the normal red carpet pablum (though sometimes we really did want to know who was wearing what), because it was a yellow carpet. (Why a yellow carpet, we asked? “It’s just to match the event logo,” a James Beard official laughed.)
Instead, we talked about the strange and wild world of culinary minutia with some of the world’s most renowned chefs and food personalities. It almost culminated in Jacques Pepin showing us his underwear, which means we were successful.
Hat tip to Humans of New York, for inspiring us to go beyond the normal press questioning gaggle.
