“My main purpose in my work is to preserve recipes and culinary lore and history and tradition to pass on to the future generations.”

– Anissa Helou

This week, we're excited to welcome Anissa Helou to SALT + SPINE, the podcast on stories behind cookbooks.

Anissa is the author of nine cookbooks, including her most recent, Feast: Food of the Islamic World.

We sat down with Anissa at our studio inside San Francisco's The Civic Kitchen to discuss the process of creating this comprehensive book, what led her to cookbooks after a career in the art world, and her mission of preserving recipes for future generations.

Plus, as always we check in with Celia Sack at Omnivore Books in San Francisco.
