Join Chris Morocco back in his home kitchen as he makes weeknight meatballs. We stripped meatballs down to the most essential elements, creating a recipe that is easy enough for a postwork dinner. Making larger meatballs means they actually have time to properly brown in the oven without overcooking.
Check out the recipe here: www.bonappetit.com/recipe/weeknight-meatballs

Idk how you got 13k down votes on this video, maybe about all the non cookery stuff or a lot of people dont like BA after... May?
But, this recipe actually made the best meatballs I have made. And I have made a lot of meatballs. The mixture with a little bit of meat was clutch. I also made toast then crumpled it for breadcrumb substitute!

(Condé Nast would not respond to questions regarding the junior position but released the following statement through a spokesperson: “Chris Morocco is not responsible for hiring practices and personnel matters, for Sohla to suggest that he is, is disingenuous and false.” Multiple sources in a position to know told Vulture he was intimately involved with hiring. When pressed about this, a Condé spokesperson clarified that Morocco was involved, but wasn’t solely responsible. Morocco did not respond to requests for comment.)

BA better apologize and explain. We deserve it. And BA need to speak clearly about what they are changing.

All BA needed to do was get rid of the bad apples and then pay people appropriately. Apparently that was too complex for them, so it's easier to just hire a bunch of token people of color. I'm not fooled. Wonder if the tokens are going to get paid what they are worth?

'"They really wanted to hire someone Black, which I know you’re not allowed to say legally, out loud,” she says. “And Chris Morocco [the director of the Test Kitchen] directly told me he didn’t like how quickly I moved up, so he wanted to make sure this person would never be allowed to develop recipes.” As she puts it, management didn’t want another “Sohla problem.”'

People need to understand to have e.g. Chris Morocco to ramble on about what he finds faulty and not wouldn't go through in a Bon Appetite video. By implying that he is "not bothered about it" or "sweeping it all under the rug" wouldn't be a fair conclusion. Undoubtedly he acknowledges that what has been going on is horrible, he still can't be too vocal about it because then all of a sudden his job is on the line which most people find him being selfish. The same example goes for Brad. By seeing viewers going onto Brad's instagram telling him he's selfish for not posting about the dilemma we say the same about him.
We know what has happened but we barely know anything directly behind the scenes, except BA's management not giving out an official excuse but re-arranging the BA lineup into a more BIPOC-friendly one "out of the blue" as their way to tell us that they're sorry for what has happened.
In short, don't blindly fire away on those who aren't capable of making a direct difference. Everyone's replacable.

Please don't think Chris is innocent. He had a direct hand in the toxic environment behind the scenes of this channel. He TOLD SOHLA IN HER FACE that he didn't like the fact she was advancing so quickly.
"And Chris Morocco [the director of the Test Kitchen] directly told me he didn’t like how quickly I moved up, so he wanted to make sure this person would never be allowed to develop recipes." - Sohla El-Waylly, in the Vulture Profile article, 'Sohla El-Waylly Goes Solo.'

@Melly B You're totally right. She called brad ''a big dumb white guy'' it's totally not part of the toxic environment.

This video is so weird and fake and disappointing. It's bad enough that he was silent and actively gatekeeping behind closed doors, but after it was exposed he still failed to do the right thing? Also he didn't even make a creative recipe here these meatballs, like pretty much everything else he does on this channel is incredibly middle of the road and overdone.

How do you still have a job after saying this and then denying it? Are BIPOC paid what their true worth? Have you learned how to temper chocolate yet?

I can't get over how unprepared Chris Morocco was for this video. He doesn't have the ingredients nor equipment he needed and complains about it way too much. I bet Sohla would have made a way better meatball video.

Hey Chris, do you still maintain that Sohla was lying that you said you didn't like how quickly she moved up (despite still earning less than nearly all her peers)? Or were you lying when you disputed it?
TheSuperFranck
TheSuperFranck - Day ago
Imagine you run a store and all your cashier are promoted to salespersons, would you think they moved up too quickly? If you hire some more and they become salesperson also, do you want 100% salespersons and no cashier? it's the same with BA, they don't want all recipe developper, they need someone to be the recipe tester!

I don’t fault them for staying if changes were made, but I feel like conflict resolution 101 is that you have to just discuss what happened and what the outcomes were so we can all move past it. I think the authenticity is gone because there’s quite a large herd of elephants in the room.

I like Chris, that being said the company just glossing over the past issues like everything is fixed is disappointing. I will never fault a person for continuing to put food on the table for his own, with that being said BA is dead to me. You had an opportunity to take responsibility and face the issues head on and missed... badly.

Great! Just the recipe I was searching for— ugly, burnt meatballs sprinkled with an abundance of corporate shilling, freshly grated white supremacy and undeserved privilege that pairs quite nicely with a complete lack of remorse or accountability.

8:35 Yes it makes sense. By incorporating the meat slowly to the bread crumbs rather than all at once you create a more homogeneous mixture.

I see many here complaining but never explaining what they expect BA to do. Get over it. BA has indicated there was an issue. They appear to have made an effort to rectify the issue.
And Sohla is not coming back. She quit. And BA is not going to rehire her back at any price....nor should they.

givememore4free - 7 days ago
This whole thing is Sohla's fault. We would be enjoying BA right now if she didn't do that stupid tweet. She could have gone easily to human resources and said being on camera is not in my job description. No one put a gun to her head and said you have to be on camera.

Why is Chris not self immolating? He and the rest of the white staff should have flogged themselves publicly for allowing their colleagues to have worked for less pay. He should have asked all of his non white colleagues what they made, I'm sure that would be completely comfortable and normal workplace conversation. At the end of the day its the responsibility of white workers to ask what their non white coworkers make and then advocate for their employers to pay them more.. I mean them less... I mean coworkers more and them less.
How dare Andy.... oh wait... I mean he's white too right?
