Here's New York Times Magazine's 2014 Food Issue

Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Here's the 2014 New York Times Magazine food issue and gracing the cover is none other than teen chef Flynn McGarry. It's titled "Yes, Chef" (which incidentally is the name of Marcus Samuelsson's memoir), and the issue covers all sorts of chef-related things, like what's in their fridges, who made their hats, and how if they're famous they're probably not cooking for you at their restaurant.

As the cover chef, 15 year-old McGarry is the subject of a long profile in which he says his plan is to "move to New York at 17, work at Eleven Madison Park or somewhere like it for a year, maybe a year and a half, and then start work on his restaurant by 19." There's also a supplemental video called "The Kids Table" where McGarry says he "wants one of the best restaurants in the world" and cooks.

There's also a profile of Boston chef/restaurateur Barbara Lynch and her former employee chef Kristen Kish (the title is "A Woman's Place is Running the Kitchen"), plus a look at the current state of French cuisine and the rise of non-French chefs cooking in Paris, and much, much more.
