Are you a person who loves to cook but every now and then you screw up? You've come to the right place! Since 2004, Adam Roberts (aka The Amateur Gourmet) has been writing about his adventures and misadventures in the kitchen. He's the author of three books (including the upcoming Broadway cookbook, Give My Swiss Chards to Broadway) and the author of a biweekly newsletter for Substack. Each week on The Amateur Gourmet podcast, there's a theme, interviews with famous chefs, writers, actors, and cookbook authors connected to that theme, plus visits from friends and family, and lots of yodeling. If you like what you hear, be sure to become a paid subscriber and you'll have access to twice weekly recipes, essays, bonus podcast material (including Ten Feisty Food Questions with that week's guest), plus threads where you can engage with other Amateur Gourmet fans about food topics that you care about. Just know there's no judgment here: we all screw up in the kitchen!
Episode details

Today's a watershed day on Lunch Therapy: we have our first couple! Byron Lane and Steven Rowley are both published authors; Byron's the author of A Star is Bored (now in paperback) all about his time working as Carrie Fisher's assistant. (It's a great read... I just finished it.) And Steven Rowley is the author of three widely-acclaimed novels: Lily and the Octopus, The Editor, and his newest, now in bookstores, The Guncle. In today's session, we talk about being on separate food journeys as a couple, who does the dishes, moving to Palm Springs, Byron's travels with Carrie Fisher, and hiding food around the house. We also talk about Byron's recent bout with cancer, how that changed his diet, getting married during quarantine, avoiding lectins, what are lectins?, and what they'd serve each other for their dream meals.
