Wendy and Bill
“Cookie porn” is how WGN-Chicago radio host Wendy Snyder described TGACCCB during our chat on her morning show with Bill Leff Friday morning. Snyder also said the book has rivaled only the Toys R Us catalog for capturing her 10-year-old son’s pre-holiday attention and that he has been busy circling recipes from it he wants her to make. Check out our wide-ranging discussion (Snyder and Leff are also rightly obsessed with the late, great Jell-O 1, 2,3) here
“Worth acquiring for its fun, historical perspective. Highly recommended,” says Lisa Campbell of TGACCCB in her Nov. 15 cookbook roundup for Library Journal.
David A., me and Famous cookies
My visit with Philly.com food guy Michael Klein and David Auspitz at Auspitz’s Famous 4th Street Cookies last week resulted in this great post
that also appeared in the print edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer’s (aka Inky’s) Food section today under the headline “The Book on a Favorite Food” (ironically placed beside a story titled “Why Can’t We Make What We Like?). Hope to see you Saturday at Reading Terminal Market
Got some love in today’s Parade magazine (print version below). The companion online piece shows the book jacket and excerpts my chocolate chip whoopie pie recipe. Between that and Nick Foles’ seven touchdown passes, I am feeling no pain!
Great Boston Globe piece today about the Oct. 19 Whitman launch event, my book and what’s going to make Whitman’s first First Night extra special.
What are you doing this New Year’s Eve? I’m going to be in Whitman watching this giant metal chocolate chip cookie (here under construction) drop into a giant glass of milk.
Steve Annear helps me bust up the myth of the chocolate chip cookie as accident in his recent Boston Magazine blog post previewing the Oct. 19 event at the Whitman Public Library.
