Cookbook Love podcast celebrates new fall books

We have written about the Cookbook Love podcast before. Author and cookbook writing coach Maggie Green started the podcast in late 2018, and our own Jenny Hartin has appeared on the podcast before. The most recent episode also features Jenny.

She and Maggie talk about a number of subjects, including Jenny’s cookbook 101 Things to Do with a Bundt┬« Pan, a discussion of how people use EYB, and then get into the meat of the interview: an in-depth talk about the latest releases. If you enjoy Jenny’s short previews in the monthly review here on EYB, then you will love to hear her enthusiasm about the best autumn cookbooks.

Books that get mentions are Pasta Grannies by Vicky Bennison, Nothing Fancy by Alison Roman, The Joys of Baking by Samantha Seneviratne, Karin Pfeiff-Boschek’s Elegant Pie, the latest edition of Joy of Cooking, Michael Ruhlman’s From Scratch, The Art of Escapism Cooking by Mandy Lee, Dinner at the Club by Joseph Baldino and Adam Brace, and Laurel by Top Chef winner Nicholas Elmi. There’s also an interesting discussion of Rachael Ray’s memoir/cookbook Rachael Ray 50: Memories and Meals from a Sweet and Savory Life.

Jenny and Maggie talk about trends in cookbooks, from whether dust jackets are in or out and the role of hand-drawn illustrations versus photographs. They discuss what happens when a beloved cookbook author passes away, focusing on Maida Heatter and her legacy. Rounding out the eclectic interview, Halloween enters into the discussion. Jenny talks about some of her favorite cookbooks that fit into the Halloween theme, including Vincent Price’s A Treasury of Great Recipes.
