Our guest on episode 56 is Kate Young, who’s the author of The Little Library Cookbook and The Little Library Year, which are collections of recipes inspired by books. Kate Young is Australian but has lived in the UK for ten years, so I think we can claim her as one of our own. We talked about her journey writing about books and food, the process of creating recipes, Australian authors who deserve to be better known elsewhere, and more.
