It’s cookbook season! We’re talking about some of our favorite food books of the fall this week. Kristina Cho, author of the one-of-a-kind book, Mooncakes & Milk Bread tells us about her favorite Chinese bakery treats and how she truly believes that what you choose to eat in a bakery says a lot about you. We get a peek into Gastro Obscura with co-author Dylan Thuras, one of the creative minds of Atlas Obscura. He shares fascinating food histories from around the world. Christine Sahadi Whelan of the iconic Sahadi’s store stops by to talk about her latest book, Flavors of the Sun, a must-have for those of you who want to make the most out of your Middle Eastern pantry spices.
