Episode 188: Being a Cookbook Writer: Single Subject Cookbooks with Leah Hyslop

 On today’s episode of the podcast I’m excited to have an interview with Leah Hyslop. Leah is a UK-based journalist and the deputy editor of one of the UK’s most prestigious food magazines, Waitrose Food. But, as you might guess because Leah’s here on the show, in her spare time you’ll find her crafting cookbooks. Her first book, Made in London, was inspired by the food of the city of London and in her most recently published cookbook, The Brownie Diaries, Leah offers brownie-based solutions to all of life’s challenges. On today’s podcast we talk about Leah’s process for connecting with a publisher, her writing process during lockdown, and the process she used to come up with 52 recipes on the same subject of brownies! And if you love brownies, stay tuned because Leash shares a few brownie-baking tips to get perfect brownies that according to Leah have the papery, crinkly crust on top.
