Talk of the Town


New Yorker culture blogger Jon Michaud gave me an early Christmas gift in the form of the extensive chocolate chip cookie history and think piece based on (and credited to) my book. His “Sweet Morsels: A History of the Chocolate Chip Cookie” was one of the most popular and most emailed stories on for way longer than Andy Warhol’s 15 minutes and got links on the Huffington Post,, and the Houston Press, to name a few, and tweets/retweets (from NPR’s Julie Rovner, risking her health policy cred, among others). Talk about a gift that keeps on giving! Happy holidays!
