Celia Sack's Smoky Pork Bun Mee with Liver Pâté
Celia Sack is the owner of one of the most beloved and important cookbook stores in the country and maybe the world: Omnivore Books in San Francisco. In today's session, Celia talks about her childhood adventures digging through other people's stuff, eating a roast beef sandwich on the way to an animal rights rally, her background selling rare books (with a specialty in golf books), and coming out to her parents during the AIDS crisis. We also talk cookbooks: which cookbooks she would save if her store was on fire, which lesser-known cookbooks she recommends, and how she deals with the political fallout of some of the authors she carries in her store.
