Hannah Goldfield on finding her way into food & restaurant criticism.
This week, we welcome New York City food critic and writer Hannah Goldfield to Lit Up!
Angela and Hannah discuss what makes a restaurant experience special, how Hannah captures New York City's shifting moods through the lens of food for The New Yorker, early influences that inspired Hannah to pursue a career in food criticism, quintessential food writers, and the pleasures of reading non-fiction on topics she doesn't devote her time to thinking and writing about.
