Carla Lalli Music’s Leftover Chili from Her Mom
If you've ever watched a YouTube cooking video, there's a good chance you've encountered Carla Lalli Music, the former Food Director for Bon Appetit, and the author of two NYT bestselling cookbooks: Where Cooking Begins (which won the James Beard Award for Best General Cookbook) and, her latest, That Sounds So Good. In today's session, Carla talks all about growing up with her journalist parents (her mom was a restaurant critic), how she differentiated from them, how she made the decision to go to culinary school, and how she got her start in food magazines. We also learn about her cookbook writing process, if she can ever know when a recipe's going to go viral (spoiler: she can't!), why she doesn't own a microwave, and what her sons have learned from watching her cook.
