August 20, 2018: Food, glorious food. NY Times staff food reporter Julia Moskin speaks with host Corinne Frugoni about our love affair with food.

If your parents named you after Julia Child and your hometown is New York City a hotbed of “culinary radicalism,”  Julia Moskin’s career can be seen as date with destiny.

Julia has been a Times Food staff reporter since 2004. At the Times, she not only generates delicious recipes, but with intelligence and a sense of humor, she has written books and articles investigating the wide lexicon of food.  Her subjects have been diverse ranging from cookbook ghostwriting, the punk-vegan movement, procrastibaking, illegal trafficking in Girl Scout cookies on ebay, and the widespread practice of freezing fish for sushi.  Never one to avoid controversy, Julia was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize in 2018 for public service for reporting on workplace sexual harassment issues. Her most recent project is writing about ranch dressing and Julia will draw the reader in exploring this salad dressing’s history, cultural context and best recipe.  Most likely, it will generate many opinions.
