Food writer Alison Roman beats the so-called cancellation culture by introducing a new cooking show

Over a year and a half after her disparaging comments against Netflix’s Marie Kondo and TV personality Chrissy Teigen, Alison Roman officially secures a bigger platform in 2022 with the newly launched CNN+ cooking show.

Cookbook author and former columnist for The New York Times will host episodes highlighting a range of prepared dishes both in and out of the kitchen, according to Diversity. The show – which has yet to be named – will also delve into the ingredients, people and stories behind Roman recipes.

“I couldn’t be more excited to partner with CNN+ on this project,” Roman said in CNN + recent press release. “I’ve been dreaming about bringing a new kind of cooking and culinary demonstration to life for years, and I couldn’t think of a better place to make it happen.”

The upcoming show is Roman’s first big deal after her public demise in 2020, according to Forbes. In a May 2020 interview with new consumer, Roman has criticized Marie Kondo – host of the Netflix reality show “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo” – for her personalized line of household products. Roman says that Kondo “sold out instantly” and that her branding is “the opposite” of Kondo’s KonMari Method.

In the same interview, Roman also throws spikes at Teigen, saying “Chrissy Teigen [had] done is crazy for me. “

“She had a successful cookbook. And then it was like: Boom, line up at Target. Boom, she now has an Instagram page that has over a million followers, like people running a content farm for her,” Roman added. “It horrifies me and it’s not something that I want to do. I don’t crave it. But like, who’s laughing now? Because she’s making a ton of money.”

The scuffle quickly escalated on Twitter before Roman issued an apology to both Teigen and Kondo. Some critics later accused Roman of racism after she targeted two women of color – both Teigen and Kondo were of Asian descent – and appropriated food, especially because of the lack of food.

Roman has since produced “Home Series”, her own cooking show on YouTube, and started the Substack newsletter, “a newsletter”. She previously served as editor of Bon Appétit magazine and pastry chef at locations such as Quince in San Francisco and Momofuku Milk Bar in New York.

More information on Roman’s show will be announced in the coming weeks CNN +.
