Ep. 25: Does the World Need Another Song? On Cookbooks with Matt Sartwell
Julia talks all things cookbooks with Matt Sartwell, the managing partner of Kitchen Arts & Letters, a bookstore in New York City that specializes in food and drink. Matt came to Kitchen Arts & Letters more than twenty years ago after a career as a book editor. Kitchen Arts & Letters is a small shop but it holds over 12,000 titles that aren’t just cookbooks— they have books on the history of food and operation and technical manuals, plus tons of out-of-print books. They opened in 1983 and Julia Child, James Beard, and Laurie Colwin were among their early customers.
Julia also answers listeners' questions about food and cooking and gives a shoutout to the Ali Forney Center.
