About Salt + Spine

SALT + SPINE is the leading podcast on the art of craft of cookbooks—featuring interviews with leading cookbook authors.

Our first season features Nigella Lawson (At My Table), Samin Nosrat (Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat), Jacques Pépin (A Grandfather’s Lessons), Preeti Mistry (The Juhu Beach Club Cookbook), Nancy Singleton Hachisu (Japan: The Cookbook), James Syhabout (Hawker Fare), Emily Kaiser Thelin (Unforgettable: The Bold Flavors of Paula Wolfert’s Renegade Life), Edward Lee (Buttermilk Graffiti), and more.

In Salt + Spine, we explore both new and vintage cookbooks and the inspirations behind them, the inspiring people who created them, and the impact they have on home cooks and the culinary world at large.

Each episode centers on one featured in-depth interview with a cookbook author. We also feature regular segments with Celia Sack of San Francisco’s Omnivore Books on intriguing cookbooks from her collection and archive.

Salt + Spine is hosted by Brian Hogan Stewart and recorded at The Civic Kitchen cooking school in San Francisco.
