Alison Roman // Dining In
“I lov￼e grocery shopping. So much. I love to do it in every city, in every country. I just think you can tell a lot about a place by the food there—and the food starts with ingredients.”
– Alison Roman
This week, we're excited to welcome Alison Roman to SALT + SPINE, the podcast on stories behind cookbooks.
After working in restaurants and bakeries in San Francisco and New York City, Alison jumped to food media, joining the team at Bon Appetit and eventually serving as the magazine’s Senior Food Editor, where she developed recipes that would define her cooking style.
We sat down with Alison at our studio in San Francisco’s The Civic Kitchen to discuss her style of cooking, her advice for home cooks, the uber-viral The Cookie, and what lipsticks to pair with various dishes.
