Smitten Kitchen's Deb Perelman in conversation with Karon Liu > OCT 22

Type Books is proud to be hosting Deb Perelman, of Smitten Kitchen fame, in conversation with The Toronto Star's food editor, Karon Liu.  

Deb Perelman is the kind of person you might innocently ask what the difference is between summer and winter squash and she’ll go on for about twenty minutes before coming up for air to a cleared room and you soundly snoring. It’s taken some time, but she’s finally realized that there are people out there that might forgive her for such food, cooking and ingredient-obsessed blathering and possibly, even come back for more.

In previous iterations of her career, she’s been a record store shift supervisor, a scrawler of “happy birthday” on bakery cakes, an art therapist and a technology reporter. She likes her current gig – the one where she wakes up and cooks whatever she feels like that day – the best. When she’s not prattling on about galley and grub here, Deb is an occasional freelance writer and photographer.

Deb likes bourbon, artichokes, french fries, things that taste like burnt sugar and baked goods with funny names. 

Karon is a home cook, picture taker, and food writer for Toronto Star. His specialty is breaking down dishes, explaining types of cuisines, profiling chefs, introducing unfamiliar ingredients; basically demystifying this romanticized industry and making the average reader feel smarter about their food choices and become more informed when they go out to eat. He is passionate about making people feel more knowledgeable and empowered on something as basic and universal as cooking.
