In the Stacks Episode 42: The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman

"In this poetic tale of recipes for happiness, two sisters share a strong bond despite being so different. Jess is a grad student in philosophy and an eco activist with a radical boyfriend, while Emily, the CEO of a technology company, found her match in an ex-Marine with a company of his own. This book spans coast to coast, the bubble of the dot-com era and the burst, Jewish mysticism and nature as a religion, and food as lifeblood." —Michelle Z. from In the Stacks.tv
