Episode 13 l Interview with Return Peace Corps Volunteer and Cookbook Reader Elizabeth Flamm
Episode 13 l Interview with Return Peace Corps Volunteer and Cookbook Reader Elizabeth Flamm

Welcome to this episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. Today I am excited today to interview Cookbook Reader and RPVC (Returned Peace Corps Volunteer) Elizabeth Flamm. Elizabeth was stationed in Koussouka, Burkina Faso for 27 months from October 2012 to December 2014. At the beginning of her training, Elizabeth was given a copy of Where There is No Microwave: A Culinary Survival Guide. Elizabeth read this book cover to cover while she lived with her host family during the initial part of her assignment. Through the reading of this cookbook, Elizabeth educated herself about how to set up a Dutch Oven once in the village, soak beans, prepare grains, and purchase the staples and spices that would soon become part of her day-to-day diet.  Since returning to the states, enrolling and graduating from Marquette University, and now serving as the Chief of Staff at City Year in Milwaukee, Elizabeth has begun to appreciate even more reading cookbooks. While not an avid collector, Elizabeth’s story of her time in the Peace Corps, and her reading of Where There Is No Microwave, points to the fact that compiled collections of curated recipes are a tool for teaching and education of cooks, especially when the cook is learning unfamiliar with the food preparation of different cuisines or countries Now with a kitchen of her own, Elizabeth enjoys cooking for herself and her friends, as well as using cookbooks as a tool to learn about flavor profiles, spice combinations, and recipes that produce good results.  .

Episode 12 l Interview with Sondra Bernstein and her Delicious New Chapters Cookbook Drive
Episode 12 l Interview with Sondra Bernstein and her Delicious New Chapters Cookbook Drive

Happy Thanksgiving! And welcome to this special Thanksgiving Episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. Thanksgiving here in the US is a holiday all about food, sharing, and cooking, so it’s no accident that I planned today’s’ interview with Sondra Bernstein. Sondra is the chef and owner of the Girl and the Fig in Sonoma, California. In October 2017 one of the deadliest fires in California history swept across Napa, Sonoma, and Mendicino counties in California. In response to the fire, and in addition to cooking thousands of meals for first responders, and those displaced by evacuations, Sondra created and held the Delicious New Chapters cookbook raiser for fire survivors. Listen in this interview as Sondra describes the days after the fires, and how she not only thought of the idea, but planned a day-long event where anyone affected by the fires could come and search for their favorite, or a new cookbook, from the thousands of cookbooks donated for the event. I would like to add that at the time of this part of the recording in early November 2018 California is again experiencing another very serious and deadly fire – the Camp Fire in Butte County. Our thoughts and prayers go out on this Thanksgiving Day to all those affected by the fires in California and to the first responders helping people piece their lives back together.

Episode 11 l Take a Look at Recipe Writing Style with Maggie Green
Episode 11 l Take a Look at Recipe Writing Style with Maggie Green

A basic list of ingredients is not copyright protected. (This is why Coca-Cola and KFC don’t share the ingredient list in their products.) That said, a writer’s expression of the list of ingredients as set forth in a recipe or a recipe collection (in a cookbook) is most often copyright protected. When a cookbook author writes a book, they have the privilege to determine their own recipe writing style. This style fits the author and communicates to the cook, consistently, what they are trying to convey in the book and recipes. On this episode of the podcast, I take a look at five cookbooks from my own collection and discuss the recipe style of the author. The goal of this episode is to share examples of recipe writing style. I also want to encourage cookbook collectors to look at the books in their collection each as a unique expression of the author. This episode may also be of interest to aspiring cookbook and recipe writers as they determine their own recipe-writing style.

Episode 9| Interview with Lisa Goldstein of @cookinglikeImeanit

On this episode of the podcast, I interview Lisa Goldstein. Lisa is a home cook and cookbook collector from the San Francisco Area. Lisa’s love for cookbook started at an early age when she read cookbooks he mom had in the house. As Lisa grew up and learned about cooking her desire to try new things expanded  She started with buying cookbooks from James Mc Nair’s Pizza and Pie Cookbook. She then added general reference cookbooks, as well as books about food science that piqued her interest in why and how cooking works. As it stands now, Lisa’s interest in cookbooks has spanned from single-subject books to specialty cookbooks published by restaurants. In December 2017 Lisa decided to cook through a cookbook, so in the interview, we’ll talk more about her cookbook-cook- through and what she has learned from this experiment with cooking every recipe from one cookbook.

Episode 6| Interview with Ally Billhorn of Sweet and Savory Eats

In this episode of the podcast, Maggie interviews Ally Billhorn. Ally is a food blogger at Sweet and Savory Eats. Ally’s cookbook interaction has spanned the gamut. Her first experience with print recipes was when she was in college with Taste of Home Magazine and their companion cookbooks. Ally then subscribed to a cookbook-of-the-month club, and started receiving cookbooks as gifts. As a food blogger, now Ally receives from publishers who want her to review their cookbooks on her blog. Ally loves the stories that authors include in cookbooks for the connection to the author including why they make a recipe and who they serve it to. To her, this feels like a conversation with the author, which Ally loves and something that she tries to mimic on her food blog.
