This is the art of eating — and of writing about what we eat.
Julia Turshen, author of Small Victories, joins Deb Perelman, the creative force behind the Smitten Kitchen phenomenon, for a discussion of all things culinary. The two writers and recipe-developers talk about finding good food, about making it, and about sharing it, through award-winning blogs and bestselling cookbooks. They discuss their art of recipe writing and favorite old-school restaurants in New York City.
