When and how did you become interested in food writing? There are two of you, so how did you come up with the idea, together or separately?
Tram: Lucy lent me a copy of Nora Ephron's Heartburn when I was visiting last year, and I fell in love with the writing, the humor, the sense of intimacy. I liked how she peppered her stories with recipes, and how they were written in this really loose, casual style. It sounded like the way people actually cook, the way you share recipes with your friends, and I wanted to read more food writing like this. But I couldn't find a lot like that out there. So the natural obvious solution was to start a food blog with my best friend.
