On Cookbooks

Once more I find that food is a sure way of capturing once-buried memories. My recent essay, “On Cookbooks: Collections and Recollection,” travels through the decades, from the first casseroles to Julia and Jacques, from Betty Crocker to Virginia Woolf.

I’m happy to have it published in the latest issue of Eclectica, one of the first journals to publish my writing when I was starting out. Read it here.
