Adam Rapoport: Good Eggs, Bad Apples

Filed by KOSU News in Art & Life.
September 12, 2013

Adam Rapoport knows good food when he tastes it. As the editor-in-chief of Bon App├ętit magazine, it’s his job to track trends in the culinary world, eat at the finest restaurants and debunk the myth that “foodie” is a complimentary term for the world’s gourmands. It’s also necessary to be opinionated. Rapoport has strong feelings about what he loves (Italian food, simply cooked), hates (pontificating about wine), and feels absolutely wrathful toward (the website Yelp).

With the latter in mind, we challenged Rapoport to an Ask Me Another game in which he had to identify major restaurant chains based on their real-life Yelp reviews. For an extra dash of competition, we brought back Major League Eating’s Eric “Badlands” Booker, a professional competitive eater, to play as Rapoport’s opponent.

In the video below, Adam flexes his skills in the kitchen and teaches you how to whip up some Ligurian pesto. [Copyright 2013 NPR]
