The Bear Reflections

Kenji and The New Yorker’s Helen Rosner reflect on the first season of the compelling TV show The Bear, now streaming on Hulu. J. Kenji Lopez Alt is of course the author of bestselling cookbooks like the Food Lab and the Wok and who cooks on-camera for his own YouTube series, Kenji’s Cooking Show. He worked in restaurant kitchens in Boston for many years, and he did a silly thing and opened his own restaurant, Wursthall in San Mateo. The New Yorker’s Helen Rosner has spent years writing about restaurants and food and chefs for Eater, Saveur, and Grub Street, among others.
