Writer. Editor. Podcast co-host. And gatekeeper emeritus to food royalty. The resume of New York-based Laurie Woolever is both diverse and interesting. In addition to her own work that has appeared in titles such as The New York Times, GQ, Lucky Peach and Roads & Kingdoms, she also spent a decade working as Anthony Bourdain's right-hand woman. In that time, she contributed to the late author and TV host’s impressive body of work, including co-authoring his 2016 release, Appetites: A Cookbook.
