Cartoonist and cook and Lucy Knisley invited us into her kitchen to cook up some delightful sauteed carrots and talk her new graphic memoir/cookbook from First Second Books, “Relish: My Life in the Kitchen.”
About why she chose to meld her own life with a cookbook, Knisley told Geek host Steven Smith:
I find that a lot of memories are sort of anchored in food memory. It’s easy for me to conjure a good story from my past to remember what something tasted like, or a good meal that I had. It’s especially easy because my family takes more photos of meals and food than they do of human beings.
