Edible Radio host and publisher of Edible Santa Fe, Kate Manchester, talks to John Donohue, author of Man with a Pan.
John Donohue, an editor at The New Yorker, has been passionate about food all his life. He worked at a retail fish market when he was in college and was a short-order cook after graduation. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two daughters. He blogs about the cooking he does for his family at www.stayatstovedad.com.
Donohue’s latest venture is The Man with a Pan, a compilation of stories about men cooking for their kids. Donohue, also a cartoonist, has compiled and edited a collection of sometimes funny and often poignant contributions by the likes of Jim Harrison, Mark Bittman, Stephen King, and Mario Batali – just to name a few. The book is a pleasure to read, allowing a thoughtful glimpse into how men feed and nurture those they love, and a refreshing look at contemporary family life. Better still, the stories are accompanied by more than sixty family-tested recipes, tips, and cookbook recommendations, as well as New Yorker cartoons.
