Chapter 1, “Original Sin”: In the summer of 2020, Bon Appétit faced an online reckoning. It imploded, seemingly overnight, former employees calling it a racist and toxic workplace. But the story of what actually happened there started ten years earlier.

Here are some recipes to try from the people featured in this week’s story:
Yewande Komolafe’s yam and plantain curry with crispy shallots and sheet-pan gochujang chicken. 
Sue Li’s caramelized onion galette and creamy turmeric pasta. Rick Martinez’s mole sencillo.
Eleanore Park’s ginger-scallion meatballs with lemony farro.

I was a little underwhelmed when I saw the topic this week because it seemed like such old news at this point. I don't know why I ever doubted Sruthi Pinnamaneni. Digs deep into the BA story and the bigger issue surrounding it. Tastefully done, gripping, and can't wait for the next one!
The allegations that Bon Appétit faces in the wake of 2020's revelations are not simple or easily explained issues, and yet Sruthi does an excellent job of leading the listener into the heart of the conflict. No matter your familiarity with the situation, this first chapter in the series sets the background for future reporting while also introducing the real people who were and are impacted. The next chapter cannot come soon enough.
