    Hi, we’re the new leaders of Bon Appétit. We know it's been a while since we've posted a video, and we are really excited to welcome you back and share the next chapter of BA with you. We are listening, learning, and building something together that showcases our best. We're building a team that is empathetic, respectful, and open to being challenged; that is paid fairly for their contributions; and that represents the audience we hope to serve. You're going to see new shows, new and familiar faces, and a whole lot of new recipes. And get ready for more from inside the Test Kitchen in the new year. We can’t wait to show you what we've been up to, and we really hope you love our new vision for Bon Appétit. Sonia, Marcus, & Dawn

    you're long silence and lack of care for the community has put me off this channel. I'm surprised to see old faces hanging around as they could have gone on to do their own projects and we would have all followed them. but not this...this is strange and it feels like when your parents split up and you get to meet the new additon...and it feels way too weird to watch so good luck but i'm out...

To sell out the creators who left who deserved more respect? How big does a check have to be to be big enough to be a part of THIS?

    You guys really need to calm down. Change doesn't happen overnight, and BA more than any other "big" food media (Americas Test Kitchen, NYT, Food Network, Food and Wine) has made the first steps toward meaningful change. Y'all are the worst reflections of cancel culture, and if you keep at it, change will never come. We'll just remain stagnant because you will cancel any moving thing that doesn't progress enough for you.
