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.
