This episode is part of a special series in collaboration with Gastronomica: The Journal for Food Studies, guest hosted by Gastronomica editorial collective member Daniel Bender. 

John Broadway problematizes how a global restaurant ranking system produced an irony in haute cuisine in the years prior to the pandemic: elite, hypermobile customers travelling the world to eat hyperlocal food in celebrated restaurants. Commenting on restaurant rankings, access and exclusivity, he positions this phenomenon in light of staggering inequality in contemporary food systems.
