I talk to Good and Cheap cookbook author Leanne Brown about what it took to create one of the most-funded Kickstarter cookbooks ever, why SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly Food Stamps) matters, and what we can do to fight food insecurity.
Leanne Brown is a food studies scholar and avid home cook. She wrote Good and Cheap as the capstone for her Master’s in Food Studies at New York University. After it went viral online as a PDF (it has 1 million downloads and counting) she published a print edition that won the 2015 IACP Judge’s Choice award.
