LARB Radio Hour Interview with Liz Prueitt
In 2017 I was the research assistant and associate producer on the Los Angeles Review of Books Radio Hour. During that time I had the special honor of cohosting a show with Liz Prueitt. Prueitt is the cofounder/owner of the legendary San Fransisco bakery Tartine. She has been a food hero of mine since I was in high school when was gifted the Tartine Bakery Cookbook by a friend; I’ve been going back to it for inspiration ever since. In the production for the radio show, I coordinated with Prueitt’s PR person and wrote up the questions for the show. But for whatever reason, the show never aired. So in honor of Tartine Manufactory finally opening in Los Angeles I am unearthing this relic to share. We recorded this show around the time Prueitt’s cookbook Tartine All Day came out. This was recorded live at the Los Angeles Time Festival of Books at USC on April 22, 2017. Special thanks to William Broughton for recording and editing this interview and to Medaya Ocher for co-hosting.
