This week's guests: Jessamyn Rodriguez & Gail Simmons.

After devoting herself to a career promoting Human Rights, Jessamyn Rodriguez landed in New York in 2002, earning a master's degree in public administration from Columbia University, and then had an idea. She would start a baking coalition that would empower immigrant, low-income women by teaching English and business management classes alongside technical baking skills. The now thriving Hot Bread Kitchen makes over $2 million a year in just bread revenue, proving that a social mission with a good product can succeed in today’s market. Heritage Radio Network recently chose Jessamyn as one of our 100 Future Food Leaders for her innovative and inspiring work on the advancement of Human Rights.

"New Yorkers are craving authentic stories and foods across cultures." [10:07]

"I was the first woman that had ever been hired in the bakery at Daniel and that was a huge feather in my cap to go out and talk about Hot Bread Kitchen." [26:45]

--Jessamyn Rodriguez on Radio Cherry Bombe

Gail Simmons is a trained culinary expert, food writer, and dynamic television personality. Since the show’s inception in 2006, she has lent her extensive expertise as a permanent judge on BRAVO’s Emmy-winning series Top Chef. Gail is also the new head critic on Top Chef Duels and was previously host of Top Chef Just Desserts, Bravo’s pastry-focused spin-off of the Top Chef franchise. She is also co-host of The Feed. Part talk show, part food adventure, and part buddy comedy, The Feed airs on FYI, A+E's new lifestyle network.

Gail joined Food & Wine in 2004 and directs special projects for the magazine, acting as liaison between the marketing and editorial teams on magazine events and chef-related initiatives, working closely with the country’s top culinary talent. During her tenure, she has been responsible for overseeing the annual Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, America’s premier culinary event. Prior to Food & Wine, Gail was the special events manager for Chef Daniel Boulud’s restaurant empire.

Gail currently lives in New York City with her husband, Jeremy and daughter, Dahlia.

"I always say I'm not an American but I'm a New Yorker." [8:35]

"I kept going back to food and I kept cooking, and ultimately decided I wanted to write about food." [13:45]

On today’s episode of THE FOOD SEEN, we welcome jill-of-all-trades, Gail Simmons. Special Projects Director at Food & Wine Magazine, judge on Top Chef and Top Chef Duels (Bravo, WED 10PM EST), as well as host of FYI’s The Feed (FYI, THURS, 10PM EST), Gail may be best know for organizing events and overseeing competitions, but she also knows the challenges of one-upmanship. Gail’s modesty precedes her, having toiled as a food writer in Toronto, cooked in cutthroat NYC kitchens like Le Cirque 2000, worked with famed restaurateur Daniel Boulud, and assisted in the offices of Vogue’s own Jeffery Steingarten. Her book, "Talking with My Mouth Full: My Life as a Professional Eater", may chronicle her life until now, but how does Gail continue to keep separate her true self from her on-camera personality. Or does she? Today's program was brought to you by Consider Bardwell.

"I was the only woman in both kitchens I cooked in. They were tough places. When all the guys would leave at the end of the night and go drinking and getting into trouble, I would generally go home and read books." [30:00]

"I'm not really a food critic, I just play one on TV!" [39:00]

"Being on television, my greatest reward is when somebody comes up to me and says 'Because I watch your show with my son he now loves to cook and wants to be a chef.' " [54:00]

Betty Fussell is an American success story – and one of the most celebrated and beloved writers in food. Over the last 50 years her writing has appeared in the New York Times, The New Yorker, Savuer, Vogue, Food & Wine and many more varied publications. Her memoir, Kitchen Wars was performed in Hollywood and New York as a one woman show by actress Dorothy Lyman. She’s written more than 11 books and has taught courses in English Literature, food writing and food history. Betty has seen it all and remains as sharp as the young writers making waves in today’s food world. She grew up in the depression and did everything she could to break free of the traditions ad restrictions in her day that held women back.
