We’ve been a fan of Penzeys Spices since we lived in Pittsburgh. The Strip District was our favorite place to get international food, and we would pop into Penzeys as we browsed the wonderful shops there.
A couple months ago, they contacted me about doing an interview for their catalog/magazine. The interview was done by phone, and it was a fun process. It helped me to think through the connections between cooking, teaching, and family. I sent them a few recipes, and they picked a handful to feature in the catalog. They worked them up in their test kitchen and took pretty pictures of the food.
The magazine is online–the Back to School 2013 edition (pp. 9 & 43).
