Eater Feature: Welcome to the Golden Age of Food Radio
Evan Kleiman’s dedication to the principles of Slow Food is evident through her appreciation for telling slow stories. Her investigation into the notion of culinary authenticity is ongoing, an often imperceptible hum beneath her weekly on-air conversations with chefs, restaurant critics, and food writers. Individual episodes of Kleiman’s shows sometimes focus on a wide-ranging theme like travel; other times they meander unpredictably, unified by a focus on the collision between food and culture. An episode might launch with a meditation on barbacoa, before taking a deep dive into bro-chef culture, farm labor conditions, or the phenomenon of fat-shaming.
