Jessica Battilana // Repertoire


"I'm not like a particularly fancy cook. I mean, I recognize the irony in that because I have a cookbook, but I still feel like I'm very much a good home cook."

—Jessica Battilana

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

Jessica is the author of Repertoire: All the Recipes You Need, which features 75 "real recipes, from real life, that really work."

Previously, Jessica wrote Corn (Short Stack), and co-authored six cookbooks, including Home Grown: Cooking From My New England Roots with Matt Jennings, Vietnamese Home Food with Charles Phan, and Tartine Book 3 with Tartine owner Chad Robertson.

“There is so much power and opportunity in food and cooking for others… and so many interesting ways to like use that skill and kind of harness that.”
— Jessica Battilana

We sat down with Jessica at San Francisco's The Civic Kitchen cooking school to talk about the stories behind Repertoire.
