Liz Crain and Megha Majumdar

 

A nourishing discussion about food and storytelling with bestselling novelist Megha Majumdar (A Burning) and cookbook author Liz Crain (Dumplings Equal Love). Food and shared meals animate the narrative of A Burning: characters come together over meals to share their lives, at times food acts as literal currency, and often as socio-economic symbol and aspiration. Likewise, great cookbooks contain a multitude of stories, and Dumplings Equal Love is full of  stories—and great recipes for making dumplings, the ultimate and original comfort food.
