Laurie wanted to study English in college but shifted to what she then thought was a more practical choice. Now she's a writer. In our conversation Laurie shared how she built a career around her ability to communicate and her love of food. She also came up at a time when publishers were rapidly experiencing the effects of technology so she had an interesting perspective on how the industry has changed.
For the food writer, which is better? Is print still prestigious? Has digital media commoditized and devalued content? On this episode, in-studio guests Laurie Woolever and Melissa Clark discuss the SOTU for journalists and cookbook authors.
Laurie Woolever is a freelance writer and editor, and works for Anthony Bourdain under the catch-all title of ‘gatekeeper.’ She joins Radio Cherry Bombe to talk about Appetites, the cookbook she’s co-authored with Anthony Bourdain.
