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

Hey everyone,

So excited to talk about my favorite subject — COLLECTING COOKBOOKS! — with none other than the founder of Stained Page News, one of the premiere destinations for cookbook news online: Paula Forbes!

Paula and I are such cookbook geeks that this conversation sounds like it’s sped up, but it’s just us being super geeky and enthusiastic.

Tomorrow, for paid subscribers, not only will you get to hear my Ten Bonus Questions with Paula (where we find out which iconic cookbook she finds to be just “meh” and which ones she’d save in a fire), but I’ll also share with you my favorite cookbooks of all time. If you don’t want to miss that, subscribe here:

And just so you get to join the fun: what are YOUR favorite cookbooks that you have in your collection?

Happy listening! (And don’t blame me if you spend a small fortune on cookbooks afterwards….)

Your friend,
