AOT #241: Christopher Kimball Podcasts Fannie’s Last Supper: Re-creating One Amazing Meal from Fannie Farmer’s 1896 Cookbook
Christopher Kimball, the founder of Cook’s Illustrated magazine, with a paid circulation of 900,000, is also the host of “America’s Test Kitchen” and “Cook’s Country,” the top-rated cooking shows on public television. Kimball discusses his wonderful new book Fannie’s Last Supper: Re-creating One Amazing Meal from Fannie Farmer’s 1896 Cookbook. “Chris’s ‘Fannie’ project is the most ambitious cooking undertaking I’ve ever witnessed outside of a restaurant opening. And as one of the devourers of the ultimate meal, I can tell you it was worth it, at least for me. (I would travel 200 miles for the jellies alone.) But the account of the making of the meal, told here in winning style, is just as impressive: part history and part contemporary journalism, it’s a fascinating story, and absolutely unique.”-Mark Bittman, author of How to Cook Everything
