WHILE GOOD FRIENDSHIP IS NOURISHING, sometimes it is also delicious. Such is the case with my bond with David Leite, whose humor and grace enriches my life, whose writing is simply divine, and whose cooking is damn good. You might know David through his two-time James Beard winning website, Leite’s Culinaria. (Leite, BTW, rhymes with eat. But of course). What you might not know, though, is that David is delicious fun to talk to, which is why when he asked me to make a memoir writing podcast with him, I lapped up the invitation. And I think I hooted. Yup. Hooted. That’s not on the podcast, though much else is.
David and I spent an hour talking memoir, memoir writing, memoir trauma, memoir everything. Why? Because the best news of all is that David is writing a memoir. You can listen to us at Leite’s Culinaria’s podcasts, part of the best online cooking site I know.
And if that is not enough, after you listen in, tell me what you liked about the podcast and enter a chance to win a signed copy of David’s book, The New Portuguese Table, winner of the IACP 2010 Julia Child Award for First Book. Listen up, leave a comment below and cook on, folks.
