All On The Table:
Food & The Up and Comers
“All On The Table” is a podcast that curates and maintains community around food to form meaningful conversations between the overlaps of creative circles in New York City. Each season is composed of five episodes, with each episode representing a different shared meal in a day. Through breakfast, lunch, and happy hour, I hold 1-on-1 conversations with New York City-based creatives that are select around a certain theme. The last two episodes, dinner and dessert, brings all guests together for a potluck-style party to continue the conversation in a group setting. For this first season, I am joined by author Emily Miller, photographer Justin J Wee, and designer Ben Denzer, who are all new to entering the food world through their own creative endeavors. Hear their stories in the episodes below.
Breakfast with Emily Miller
For breakfast, I sit down with BreakfastClub founder and creative director Emily Miller over tartines and coffee. We talk about everything from banana ketchup and cooking with blood to finding your niche. We also say the word “breakfast” 48 times.
Lunch with Justin J Wee
For lunch, I’m joined by Justin J Wee: editorial photographer, one-half of Special Sauce, and community chef. We sit down over a shaved carrot and radish salad and mushroom spinach soup to discuss the relationship between community, identity, and travel. (Way less importantly, we also give our two cents on candy corn.)
Happy Hour with Ben Denzer
For Happy Hour, I sit down with artist, designer and publisher Ben Denzer. In addition to being a designer at Penguin Books, Ben is the mastermind behind Catalog Press as well as the much beloved viral project Ice Cream Books. All of his work stems from a fascination with exploring books as objects, which we dive right into over a salami and brussels sprouts flatbread and a few Montauk Driftwood Ales (read: pizza and beer).
Season One Dinner
You've met them in the first three episodes, now join Emily Miller, Justin J Wee, Ben Denzer and myself as we come together over a potluck-style dinner party to compare notes on navigating creative careers in New York City.
Season One Dessert
Part two of our dinner party continues over dessert, which includes three different kinds of ice creams and, keeping in the holiday theme, a cranberry curd pie. Join me alongside Emily Miller, Justin J Wee, and Ben Denzer as we conclude talking about navigating food-based creative careers in New York City in this season’s final episode of “All On The Table.”
