For our second course, we’ve all heard that strong branding is key to success. But each of our panel of culinary pros has gone a step further, developing a unique personal style that reflects her work. We discuss the importance of aesthetic consistency in a cutthroat field.
And for our third course, we examine society’s psychological struggle with sugar. While ‘clean eating’ dominates Instagram feeds, indulgent desserts are selling like hotcakes. We ask our sugar-expert guests what they make of the tension between the push for food purity and the popularity of sweets.
