Ed Levine's Quintessential New York Pizza and Pastrami
He's the quintessential New York food writer and he's here to talk about the quintessential New York Lunch. Ed Levine, the founder of Serious Eats and author of Serious Eater (as well as New York Eats and Pizza: A Slice of Heaven) opens up in today's session about losing his parents at a young age, how restaurants took on a familial role for him, how his parents' communism affected his food writing, and the way these formative experiences shaped his psychology and career later in life. We also talk about the future of food media, the best bagels and bialys, Katz's pastrami, our grandmothers' pickles, Nathan's, and how he roasts a chicken.
