Striking up a conversation with a stranger in a bar is accepted, even expected. And storytelling is a big part of that engagement. But when it comes to origin stories behind cocktails, Wayne Curtis has noticed a shift in focus over the last ten years. Hand in hand with the recent cocktail revival and the increased professionalization of bartending, an obsession with fact over fancy has emerged. “I started hearing a phrase in bars that I don’t think had ever been uttered before inside a bar: ‘What’s your source on that?’” In this episode of Gravy, Wayne Curtis reflects on what’s lost and gained as cocktail and spirits writers—as well as curious consumers—seek out well-supported history over well-spun stories behind the bar.
Claire Saffitz Teaches the Internet How to Bake
We go behind the scenes of one of the web's most beloved food shows, Gourmet Makes, with host Claire Saffitz of the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen. In each episode Claire tries to figure out how to make an artisanal version of a classic junk food, using an approach very different from other food TV shows.
