East Bay Cooks LIVE


“The East Bay has always remained true to itself. It includes Oakland, the most ethnically diverse population in the nation; Berkeley, the birthplace of the Free Speech Movement; the island of Alameda with its artisan breweries, wineries, and distilleries; and the Livermore Valley, one of California’s oldest winemaking regions.”

– Carolyn Jung

This week, we're excited to welcome CAROLYN JUNG, NORA HARON, JEN BIESTY, and ANGELO SMITH to Salt + Spine, the podcast on stories behind cookbooks.

Carolyn is the author of East Bay Cooks: Signature Recipes from the Best Restaurants, Bars, and Bakeries, which features 40+ chefs including Bijan's Nora HaronShakewell's Jen Biesty, and Pizza Antica's Angelo Smith.

In today's live show, we joined Carolyn and the chefs at the book launch party at Neyborly in Oakland's Jack London Square. We talk the importance of the East Bay dining scene, memorable cookbooks, and play an East Bay celebrity game.

Plus: SIERRA TISHGART from GREAT JONES COOKWARE joins us to discuss EDNA LEWIS’ seminal Taste of Country Cooking.
