New York chef Esther Choi takes a brief break from her restaurants Mokbar and Ms. Yoo to chat with us on today’s episode, spilling on everything from her Korean roots to why her kitchens are only staffed by women to her dog situation. But first, we hear from the Gluten Free Girl herself, Shauna Ahern. She guides us through hosting a celiac-friendly Thanksgiving as well as tips on being the gluten-sensitive guest. We wrap things up with more turkey talk from comedian Jenny Yang, who recounts her hilarious experience cooking Thanksgiving dinner for her parents for the first time.
