Special Sauce: Francis Lam on American Identity and Chrissy Teigen’s Mac and Cheese

In this episode of Special Sauce, Lam and I discuss how he tends to “go for the cheeks” and why his parents are proud of him for doing so. He also talks about how normal it is for writers to hate writing—but why he still encourages aspiring authors to explore their passion for the craft. Finally, Francis and I have a spirited discussion about cultural appropriation and sensitivity in the American food culture.
