Episode 81: Joe Yonan
Before COVID-19 brought life as we know it to a halt and people started hunkering down at home, stirring up comforting stews, Joe Yonan stopped by Food & Wine headquarters to talk about his gorgeous—and prescient—new cookbook, Cool Beans. The Washington Post food editor opened up about his decision to eliminate meat from his diet, how he decides what and whose stories to tell, and the effect that testing a bean cookbook has on a marriage.
