Episode 22 l 5 Myths About Writing a Cookbook with Maggie Green
Episode 22 l 5 Myths About Writing a Cookbook with Maggie Green

Welcome back to another episode of the podcast. I based today’s episode on a blog post where I covered what I consider to be the myths many believe about cookbook writing projects. My goal is to fan a spark of cookbook writing interest into a flame if you want to write a cookbook, but perhaps believed any of these myths. Tune into the podcast to hear more about each myth and how an aspiring cookbook writer can use these myths to their advantage and get started on a cookbook project of their own.

Myth #1: I need to have a successful food blog before I write a cookbook.

Myth #2: I cannot write a book because someone has already written about my topic.

Myth #3: I must have my cookbook published by a major publisher.

Myth #4: I do not know enough to write a cookbook.

Myth #5: I need to know how to photograph food and design my own book pages before I write a cookbook.

Episode 21 l Interview with Cookbook Collector and co-author of The Book Club
Episode 21 l Interview with Cookbook Collector and co-author of The Book Club

Hello and welcome to another episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. Today on the podcast, I’m featuring an interview Cookbook Collector and author of The Book Club CookBook Judy Gelman. This is a unique episode for the podcast in that I haven’t to this date interviewed a traditionally published cookbook author. The goal of the podcast is to talk to and share stories with cookbook readers, buyers, collectors, and clubs, and so far for the first 20 episodes, I’ve done just that. But the book I feature today intrigued me, so I reached out to coauthors of the BookClub Cookbook Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp about an interview. The Book Club CookBook explores the connection between books and food in own book clubs. Judy and Vicky, we were both intrigued by the idea of pairing books and food, and they found that food and cooking is often a fun and interesting part of book club meetings. In this interview, Judy and I discuss her tips of starting a book club, finding an agent for a cookbook project, and her mid-century cookbook collection, inspired by her work on The Unofficial Mad Men Cookbook.

Episode 20 l Interview with Ridgewood Public Library Librarian and The Cookbook Club Organizer Lisa Trent
Episode 20 l Interview with Ridgewood Public Library Librarian and The Cookbook Club Organizer Lisa Trent

Hello and welcome to another episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. Today on the podcast I have a fun interview with Lisa Trent. Lisa lives in NJ and works at the Ridgewood Public Library. At the library, Lisa organizes and maintains The Cookbook Club. The Cookbook Club meets about once a month on Wednesdays. Lisa chooses a cookbook, and then after registering for the event, Lisa obtain copies of the cookbook from their own collection, or on intra-library loan. On the night of the club, registrants prepare a recipe from the book, gather to sample the food, and discuss the cookbook. In this interview, Lisa also discusses how the library “weeds” out cookbooks from their collection, sells used cookbooks to their patrons, and her thoughts on trends in cookbooks from her work in the library.

Episode 19 l Interview with Cookbook Club Member and Collector Laurie Bakke
Episode 19 l Interview with Cookbook Club Member and Collector Laurie Bakke

Hello and welcome to another episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. Today I feature our first interview for 2019 with Laurie Bakke. Laurie lives in Hendersonville, NC, a city about 30 miles south of Ashville. It’s safe to say that Laurie’s life has been immersed in food, cooking, and cookbooks. Laurie’s mother, a self-taught cook with a garden, inspired Laurie’s career in fresh and flavorful cooking. After graduation from culinary school and a stent at Highland Lake Inn, where Laurie cooked from the inn’s organic garden, Laurie ventured into a world of fresh, seasonal cooking where she ran the show. Laurie opened her own cafe, Cafe Laurie, and then a  kitchen store and wine cellar, Sage Gourmet. As you will hear Laurie say in our interview, anyone can make food taste good with cream and butter, but in her cafe and the subsequent wine dinners at the shop, Laurie leaned on her love of from scratch cooking with, fresh seasonal ingredients, and her cookbook collection, to inform her menus, soups, salads, hot entrees, and desserts. In fact, when Laurie sold Cafe Laurie, she left some of her cookbooks behind for the next owners. Laurie has since self-published her own cookbook and tends to her cookbook collection of over 1000 cookbooks. Laurie loves cookbooks to keep up with cutting-edge ingredients and techniques, to plot her next cookbook club meeting for the Adventure Cooks, and or for her next cookbook writing project.

Episode 17 l Interview with Cookbook Collector and Food Librarian Sara Bir
Episode 17 l Interview with Cookbook Collector and Food Librarian Sara Bir

Welcome to another episode of The Cookbook Love Podcast. And I’m excited today interview Cookbook Collector and Food Librarian Sara Bir. Sara’s love of cookbooks started at an early age with her interaction with her Mom’s copy of Better Home and Garden’s and Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book. Sara’s love for cookbook’s grew when she worked as a paige and at the circulation desk at her local public library. Now as a food writer and cookbook author, Sara uses a variety of online resources and databases that are most likely of interest to all cookbook collectors who also love to read about food history, the evolution of cooking, and TK.

Listen to Episode 17 below:

Things We Mention In This Episode:

  • Culinary Pamphlets Online:
    A small but fun collection of promotional recipe pamphlets from the 1930s-1960s. Shortening, for some reason, is very heavily represented here.
    https://culinarypamphletsonline.omeka.net/items/browse
    https://digital.lib.msu.edu/projects/cookbooks/index.cfm

    Food Timeline:

    An interactive timeline of the history of food on earth. The interface is very basic, but the scope is massive. Think of it as a food encyclopedia, in timeline form. It’s also very searchable without even looking at the timeline. Librarian Lynne Oliver runs this, using a lot of her own cookbook and cookery book collection.

    www.foodtimeline.org

    JSTOR:

    Thousands of full-text academic journals, papers, magazines, and books. This one leans more toward heavy-duty research; I used it a lot when writing my book “The Fruit Forager’s Companion.”

    Of the resources here, this is the only one behind a paywall. It is possible, if not probable, that you can log in to it for free using your public or college library card. Just call your library and ask–they’ll wak you through it.

    New York Public Library Buttolph Collection of Menus:

    Tens of thousands of restaurant menus collected by a slightly eccentric New Yorker. No recipes here, of course, but looking at menus tells us a lot about how people ate when they didn’t eat at home, and who ate out in the first place (these menus tend to be from restaurants for the well-heeled).

    NYU’s Early American Cookbooks:

    Full-text cookbooks in a very easily browsable format. Choice title: “The Bachelor and the Chafing Dish” from 1896. Most of the books here were written for homemakers, though–presumably women. They also have a lot of infographics illustrating how recipe writing in America has evolved between 1800 and 1920.

Episode 16 l Interview with Cookbook Reader and Military Spouse Jenna Miller of Jenna’s Delicious Creations

Welcome to another episode of The Cookbook Love Podcast. And I’m excited today interview Cookbook Reader and Military Spouse Jenna Miller. Military family life most typically involves relocations. In this episode, Jenna discusses the locations her family has lived with her husband who is Active Duty Air Force. As a result of these relocations, Jenna has leaned on cookbooks for many reasons. Cookbooks help her recreate familiar foods when they were living overseas. Then when they moved back to the states, cookbooks helped her recreate the foods they experienced in Italy and around Europe. In order to keep the number of books that Jenna has to pack, ship, and move to a minimum, she is an avid user of her local public library. She enjoys the library for not only browsing new titles but for recipe development as well.

Episode 15 l Interview with ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen Senior Community Educator and Cookbook Collector Janine Kolotyluk

Welcome to this episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. Today I’m excited to interview Janine Kolotyluk who is the Senior Community Educator at ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen in Edmonton, Alberta (Canada).

One of the ongoing traditions at ATCO is the production of their Holiday collection cookbook.

Episode 14 l Interview with Digna Cassens, RDN - Cookbook Reader and Collector

 

Welcome to this episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. Today I feature an interview with Digna Cassens. Digna lives with her husband of 50+ years on a small ranch in the Mojave Desert of Southern California. They enjoy baking ancient grain breads, cooking, growing fruit trees, chiles and organic vegetables. Digna is a cookbook collector and this stemmed from her career working as a Registered Dietitian in long-term-care, as well as her background growing up in Puerto Rico with a mother who was not only an excellent cook, but a cookbook author as well.  In the episode Digna and I discuss collecting cookbooks, downsizing her cookbook collection, collecting the Time Life Foods of the World Series, and her tips on writing family recipes.

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 7| Interview with Eric Lee - Cookbook collector with over 2400 books
Episode 7| Interview with Eric Lee - Cookbook collector with over 2400 books

In this episode of the podcast, Maggie interviews Stay-At-Home-Dad and Cookbook Collector Eric Lee. Eric is SAHD from St Paul MN who started collecting cookbooks about 5 years ago out of a time in his family’s life when he needed to learn to cook for their evening meal. Eric’s first venture into cooking has a smoky ending when he prepared a meal with a  stovetop smoker and BBQ book but quickly grew into a passion for not only exploring cooking but collecting cookbooks as well. In today’s episode, Eric and I talk about his collection of over 2400 books, how he stores and organizes his collections, and his tips for where to begin if you’re new to cookbook collecting or cooking.

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.
