In 2014, Good Food covered the problematic project, “Thug Kitchen,” a blog that spawned three cookbooks and a line of merchandise. The “thugs” turned out to be a white couple from Hollywood. Bryant Terry, a vegan activist, penned a piece for CNN during the dust-up, castigating the authors using an appropriated voice in their books. Terry revisits the controversy and the historical moment taking place now.
