"Food is essential to life. It’s arguably our nation’s biggest industry. Food, not sex, is our most frequently indulged pleasure,” notes writer and director of the Southern Foodways Alliance, John T. Edge. And yet today,  though there has never been more excitement and opportunity around food, it can be incredibly difficult to make a living simply writing about food. 

Join Sarah Zorn (Food Editor of Brooklyn magazine and Taste Talks, and author of Brooklyn Chef's Table), alongside Francis Lam (editor at Clarkson Potter, judge on Top Chef Masters, and columnist at the NYT Magazine), Kat Kinsman (Senior Food and Drinks Editor at Time Inc.'s all-breakfast site Extra Crispy) and Maile Carpenter (Founding Editor in Chief, Food Network Magazine) to hear how they not only cultivate and translate their ideas around food across many platforms, but also how they see this ever changing landscape shifting in the future.
