Burnt Toast Podcast

Judith Jones and Her Life in Food

June 16, 2016

In the last episode of our podcast, Burnt Toast, we talked to Judith Jones—most famously the editor of Mastering the Art of French Cooking—about Julia Child and her work with cookbooks. We recorded, wide-eyed and eating eggs, from her dining room on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

But Judith is a cook herself, too. I wanted to know about her personal intersection with food—how it factored into her own life, her marriage, and her family.

That's today, in part two of our conversation with the legendary editor.

I have a thing for most foods topped with a fried egg, a strange disdain for overly soupy tomato sauce, and I can never make it home without ripping off the end of a newly-bought baguette. I like spoons very much.
