Today on the podcast I’m excited to interview Jessica Brand. Jessica is a professional graphic designer and website designer. She loves cooking and hosting and is always trying new recipes, tinkering with various ingredients, and learning from my mistakes. When visiting bookstores, the first area she would head to is the cookbook section. Being a graphic designer, she was drawn to beautiful covers, typography, and imagery. She felt like cookbooks are a treasure trove of inspiration and loved flipping through the pages and getting new ideas for recipes and techniques, much more so than scrolling through the Internet or Pinterest. The idea of a cookbook club was introduced to her by my neighbors back in 2012. Jessica and her husband had just moved in and they mentioned their “culinary book club” on numerous occasions. She was secretly waiting for an invitation, but it never came. As it turns out, it was a blessing a disguise. If she had joined their book club, she would have never started her own cookbook club, called Feast. So today on the podcast we talk about Jessica’s love for cookbooks, her Feast cookbook club, and her tips for starting a cookbook club of your own.
