Gail Simmons always knew what she wanted to do for a living: eat, cook and write. From writing restaurant reviews for her college newspaper, to attending culinary school and working in top kitchens, to landing a job at Food & Wine magazine, Gail has seen every side of the food industry. When Gail was invited to serve as a judge on a new show called Top Chef, she had no idea it would turn into a 17 season career on what is one of the most popular shows on TV. Today, you can also find her hosting and judging several shows and making cameos on national TV as an expert on all things food. On this episode of Live To Eat, we chat about Gail’s efforts to support restaurants during this pandemic, why her cookbook, Bringing It Home, is your perfect confinement companion, and the origin of her passion for black licorice!

South Africa with Gail Simmons: taste buds, safaris, and raising little travelers

Play
Read more

Gail Simmons is a Canadian food writer, cookbook author, and judge on BRAVO’s Top Chef whose love of food started as far back as she can recall. Since childhood, Gail regularly traveled with her family to South Africa, her father’s country of origin. On today's episode, Gail shares the myriad of ways the country sparked her early interest in the world around her and introduced her to new cuisine. The powerful sensory memories she developed have stayed with her to this day. From going on safari, to taking her first sip of wine, to witnessing apartheid, her trips to South Africa are a testament to the educational value of leaving one’s own bubble. It’s a lesson Gail now instills in her two young children, Dahlia and Kole.

The Rise of Food Media, with Gail Simmons

Play
Read more

The past 15 years have seen the cooking show move from niche, daytime and educational “good for you” programming to the center of mainstream American entertainment.  This has fueled the rise of the celebrity chef and, it’s cousin, the rise of the TV chef. The beating heart of this explosion is the food competition show, principally among them “Top Chef”, but also “Hell’s Kitchen”, “Iron Chef”, “Masterchef” and a host of others which have proliferated on network and cable television dials at a dizzying pace. Enter the streaming services, and this trend has only accelerated with shows like “Nailed It” and “Sugar Rush”. And this says nothing of the kids competition shows, chief among them “Masterchef Junior”.  At the same time, food media has taken a life of its own on social media, from Instagramming cooking and dining, to “maker” videos on YouTube, to food and restaurant blogs, and on and on. In a nutshell, food and cooking are pretty much everywhere at all times, everyone is a critic, and everyone is a chef. 

On this episode of The Medium Rules, host Alan Baldachin is joined by Gail Simmons, who as a judge on Bravo’s Top Chef throughout its fifteen season run (and still going strong) has become a household name in both the United States and her native Canada.  Gail and Alan discuss the origins of Gail’s interest in cooking, her background as a trained chef and food writer, her stint working for Daniel Boulud, and of course her tenure on Top Chef where she continues to reign alongside Padma Lakshmi and Tom Colicchio.  We also discuss how the proliferation of food media has changed the way people think about the culinary arts, and how cooking and eating have themselves been transformed.

We hope you tune in, listen and watch this chatty and informative episode with Gail.
