Special Sauce: Kenji on His Children’s Book, Cookbook, and Gift Giving This Year

Kenji Lopez-Alt tells all about his new New York Times best seller children’s book Every Night is Pizza Night on this week’s episode of Special Sauce. 

It turns out that for Kenji writing a 48 page picture book for his daughter was in many ways much more difficult to write than his 900 page mega-hit The Food Lab. Counterintuitive, right? Lucky listeners will also get a sneak preview of his next cookbook, which is about the joys of wok cooking at home. Kenji admitted that the manuscript he handed in was more than a thousand pages long! Finally, he and I discuss how the whole concept of gift giving this holiday season has been altered by the pandemic.
