A&M stopped by Martha Stewart Living Radio to chat with Lucinda Scala Quinn about food52 and the six years A&M worked together on The Essential New York Times Cookbook. Listen to the full interview here (be ready for lots of great behind-the-scenes tidbits -- the interview is a whole hour long!).

Great interview! I'm so glad you shared it here so we all could listen in. I loved hearing that you made all the recipes and served many to family and friends.. There is no better test than hearing comment from family who, as we all know, will not mince words! The reason that was important to me is, I have used The Joy of Cooking as my bible for years and years and I can't tell you how shocked and disappointed I was to have heard in the movie, Julie and Julia, that Irma Rombauer hadn't tested many of the recipes. It's silly at this point (with so many reprints and testamonials)) to think this, but I hardly look at Joy in the same light as I did before I heard that little confession. Good work, A&M!

I knew you had tested all the book's recipes together, but I had assumed you were childhood friends. I had no idea you met specifically for this project. How beautiful - a friendship born from cooking together!

This was so much fun to listen to. The mustard cognac stew does sound wonderful. I might have to move Jacques Pepin over the next time I plan on a stew!

I'm going to have to break down and get this book. I don't know where I'll shoehorn it in . . . wait! Aha! My students will love it as a resource!

I loved hearing about the recipes from the book that you make over and over again. I have made the Italian Beef Stew 3 times, and we love it over the garlic rubbed grilled bread! I guess I need to try the mustard cognac stew next. Thanks for a great book!
