FoodCrush Podcast: Contemplating authenticity
What is authenticity? It's a word that, by its very definition means "real" or "genuine." It's a word that makes sense when you're discussing an iconic painting, a Prada bag or an athletic jersey. But is it a realistic term to use to describe food?
We sat down with Dan Jacobs and Dan Van Rite (co-owners of Batches, Dandan and Fauntleroy), two chefs whose cuisine has come under fire for its authenticity (or lack thereof) to ponder the notion of authenticity.
Does it exist? Does it matter? Or should we all just sit back, relax and enjoy a bit more of that delicious food? Listen in!
Looking to delve in a bit further into the topic of authenticity? Dive into these articles attempting to bring some clarity to the topic:

- "Authenticity in Food: What defines it and does it matter?" by Surekha Ragavan
- "On gastronomic authenticity" by Raymond Sokolov
