IMG_4735Last spring I bought this cookbook at the Milwaukee Public Library’s bookstore because I was fascinated with the rather vitriolic notes that someone had written throughout it. I wrote an essay about it and published it here.

Some time later Kate Murphy of the New York Times contacted me, saying she saw my piece, she was writing a story on cookbook marginalia, could we talk?

I’m happy to report that Kate’s story was published today in the Dining & Wine section of the Times, both in print and online.

Big thanks (and congrats) to Kate Murphy. It’s a really nice piece.



  1. How wonderful to get such a nice mention in the NY Times! I hope many good things come of this.
