Delicious conversation

I'm really enjoying this podcast! I too really love READING cookbooks like novels and particular enjoy it when they add stories about the recipes, where they originated, where they were first made, and more. The stories are like another ingredient...an essential ingredient that takes a recipe over the top!
Trying to entice a group of friends to do a Cookbook Club i.e. select a cookbook and cook/bake several recipies from it and come together to share those dishes. It's definately something on my "to do" list!
Keep up the great job and thank you!!!

A great idea

I love the idea of this podcast. I love the idea of a community of cookbook lovers and how she pulls together a wide variety of people to be in the show. As someone who loves cookbooks myself, it’s great to find others who collect rather obsessively as well since I don’t know anyone in person. Plus I feel like my collection of 476 is puny compared to some I’ve heard about! The interviews and the parts about writing cookbooks have been interesting. I can tell she’s a new podcaster though—there’s something a bit stiff about the presentation and how she handles the material. Here’s a couple of specifics.
1) the intro is way too much. It introduces Maggie three times—twice in her voice and once by the guy. Totally unnecessary and rather irritating. One intro that says what it is and who she is and what episode number would be enough.
2) in the solo ones, I feel almost like a school lecture where she introduces the topic, gives the outline, then scrupulously follows it and then sums up. I personally find this structure really repetitive and not helpful—even though her information is always very good.
All that said, I’m sure it will continue to evolve and I’ll continue to listen as I appreciate very much what she is trying to do. Oh and I very much appreciate that it is ad-free!

Validating & Inspirational

This podcast is the first place that I have found publicly that validates my being cookbook obsessed all of these years. Maggie is Knowledgeable & engaging. The show topics & guests are both relevant & interesting. This shows inspires me as a cook but also as an aspiring cb author. I have listened to the podcast since almost the beginning (on Spotify) I switched to Apple today so I could subscribe & leave a review!! I have shared & will continue to share this podcast. Keep up the great work Maggie & thank you.
