Ever wonder what it would be like to just travel around the country and eat for a living? If so, you'll want to buddy up to this week's guest, Julia Kramer, Bon Appétit's deputy editor and lead for the magazine's Best New Restaurants in America list. Each spring, she travels to more than 200 restaurants, booking double dinners, brunches, lunches, and more to find the best of the best and chisel it all down into one definitive lineup: the Hot 10. A few months ago (when the list was still very much top secret) we sat down with Julia before she headed out on maternity leave to find out just what it takes to do her job—and, of course, where we should be traveling to eat. The result is an episode that has us ready to book flights to Dallas, Detroit, and more for some Malaysian nasi lemak, Laotian noodles, rhubarb danishes, and charcuterie boards. Needless to say, you'll be hungry by the time it's over.

Reminder: If you’re in New York City and you want to taste some of the amazing dishes from the Hot 10 restaurants for yourself, Women Who Travel listeners can get 10 percent off tickets to Bon Appétit’s Hot Ten party on October 19 at BAhot10.com with code WWTHOT10.
