Episode 32
BRILLIANT WOMEN, BOLD NEW MOVES

Meet the extraordinary women who are changing the New York culinary world.  In 2016 Clare de Boer, Jess Shadbolt, and Annie Shi opened their first restaurant and promptly broke most of the rules of success. Journalist Charlotte Druckman finds out how King is crushing it.

Last summer, Dana Bowen was the Executive Editor of Food & Wine; this summer she's running a culinary club with Sara Kate Gillingham, the James Beard Award-winning writer. Host Howie Kahn visited The Dynamite Shop to hear why these powerhouses decided to leave the world of words for the world of cooking with tweens and teens, and how they hope their Make & Take program will change how families eat together.

Segment 2
The Magic of King

Every year, hundreds of restaurants open in New York City.  Almost as many close.  In such a harsh climate, how does a new place become a hit? The three friends who run the sensational  restaurant King in Greenwich Village will tell you--they're not really sure. One thing that we know is special about King: the gorgeous Italian-influenced menu changes every day. Everything. The pasta you had once may not be repeated. The chicken may be replaced by another bird. Food journalist and author Charlotte Druckman sat down with King's owners Annie Shi and chefs Clare de Boer and Jess Shadbolt to find out what makes this simple-seeming corner restaurant so unique.
