Episode 304:  Being a Cookbook Author with Master Food Preserver Jennifer Gomes

Hello, and welcome to another episode of the podcast. Today, I had an interview with Jennifer Gomes. Jennifer is a Master Food Preserver, the Perfectly Preserved podcast host, and the author of The Pressure Canning Cookbook. When Jennifer set out to write a cookbook, she thought she was going to write a book about water bath canning. But the publisher returned to her and asked if she would write a book about pressure canning instead. Listen in as we discuss pivoting our concept for our cookbook, writing about a niche topic, the goal of daily consistent actions to promote her book (as inspired by the book Atomic Habits), and Jennifer’s recommendations for buying a pressure canner.
