Kirstin: There’s no cookbooks out at the moment!
Maureen: Tell me about it. January is absolutely the bleakest month for new cookbooks. It’s all diet books, vegan books, healthy eating books. It’s so awful, and completely uninspiring.
Kirstin: This looks excellent, though.
Maureen: It came out in September, but I think it’s very much adjacent to Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, (or Salt, Blah, Blah, Blah, as we call it) which we loved. It’s got a lot of lengthy essays and explanations about different aspects of cooking, which should be interesting.
Kirstin: Those sorts of things make you a better cook because you start thinking about how and why you’re doing what you’re doing.
Maureen: This is definitely going to be another book where we have to do a lot of reading…
Kirstin: I’m completely up for that.
Maureen: At least it’s not a diet book.
