Today Show turns to Andrew Knowlton '97 for fall food trends

Bon Appetit food editor Andrew Knowlton ’97, a philosophy major at Bates, appears on a Today show segment about hot food trends for the fall, mentioning “super versatile” Tuscan kale “for people who think they don’t like kale,” and pimenton (smoked Spanish paprika), a spice for almost anything. “On birthday cake it’s so-so, but it still works,” he says, to laughter. In a Bon Appetit story, he praises Portland, Maine, the “Foodiest Small Town in America,” citing the city’s fresh seafood, local beers, artisanal bakeries, and “the best breakfasts in the country.” In the Today segment, Knowlton appears at about the 4:15 mark.
