Chef Eric Ripert’s secret to outlasting trends
We’ll send you a myFT Daily Digest email rounding up the latest FT Weekend podcast news every morning.
This week, we speak to legendary chef Eric Ripert on the 50th anniversary of his restaurant Le Bernardin, possibly the most consistently critically beloved restaurant in the world. Keeping a restaurant relevant over time takes work and constant change. More than 30 years in, he tells us what it takes to lead a lasting institution. Then, FT Weekend editor Alec Russell and senior editor Horatia Harrod join Lilah to talk comedy. As comedians navigate artistic expression, respect, and where to draw the line onstage, we explore what makes something funny today.
