I've been in print before. Mostly newspapers, though there was a book or two of collected linguistics essays that I contributed to when I was in grad school.
This is a real book. A real COOKBOOK. !!!!!!
I have no idea how or why I was selected to appear with 799 other cooks in Molly O'Neill's new tome, One Big Table, but there I am. I recall being grilled by a research assistant last year, but I didn't think it would go anywhere. (And how the heck did she find me?) Then Molly herself emailed, and we talked back and forth for a while. She's a solid reporter; not lazy. Friendly and wry, too. Yay, Molly. My new BFF.
AND. Speaking of yay, Molly, my name was mentioned in a blurb on the back cover, by Molly Wizenberg. (Blogger solidarity, I suspect. Or maybe because I'm friends with her aunt and uncle.) But yay, and thanks. My other new BFF.
Oh, by the way, my recipe is totally ridiculous, though I swear by it.
Jeez. Immortalized for ranch dressing.
