Ep: 31: The More Visibility with Karen Akunowicz + LJ Johnson
Karen Akunowicz, named Best Chef: Northeast in 2018 by James Beard Foundation, is well-known from her stint on Bravo’s Top Chef, her time as Executive Chef at Myers + Chang in Boston, and from Myers + Chang at Home, the cookbook she co-authored with Joanne Chang. She owns and runs her new restaurant Fox & the Knife in Boston with her spouse, LJ Johnson, plus their poké shop, SloPoke.
Julia sat down with Karen and LJ to talk about their partnership in and out of their businesses and how they navigate things like talking about their relationship on television, work-life balance (whatever that is!), and more.
There are also answers to listeners' questions and a work about No Kid Hungry.
