To celebrate pride month, we’ve put together a lovely little reading and watch list for you that highlights some of the queer culinary pioneers we idolize, and stories of LGBTQ+ food history.
Why are we sharing these? Well, 2 out of 3 of our hosts identify as members of the LGBTQ+ community, and the one who doesn’t is a strong and vocal ally. We’re here, we’re queer, and we like carbs.
