CHSWFF17: Ruth Reichl, Mashama Bailey, and Ellen Bennett with Kerry Diamond of Radio Cherry Bombe
Talk about a lineup of power women! Radio Cherry Bombe host Kerry Diamond welcomes guests Ruth Reichl, Ellen Bennet (of Hedley & Bennett), and Mashama Bailey (of the award-winning Savannah restaurant, The Grey). Since they're in Charleston, they discuss what makes Southern food so unique and indicative of American cuisine as a whole with Mashama sharing some family recipes and how she's worked them into her restaurant The Grey. Ellen talks about what makes her so proud to produce her chef-centric aprons in her hometown of LA. She shares some memories of growing up and the influences her Mexican heritage and culture have had on her life. Ruth shares some stories about her childhood, like the time her mother (who was a terrible cook) gave a whole dinner party food poisoning.
