We're on to episode 2! (In case you missed our inaugural podcast episode, find it here. We'll wait.)
This week, with our friends Charlotte Druckman, co-founder of the Piglet, and Marian Bull, Digital Editor at Saveur and former editor here at Food52, we discuss cookbooks. In Cookbooks: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly, we talk about what makes a good one, what makes a bad one, and some of the craziest books ever published.
