Season To Taste
Molly BirnbaumAt twenty-two, just out of college, our next guest spent her nights reading cookbooks and her days working at Cambridge bistro Craigie On Main, preparing to start training at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America. But shortly before Molly Birnbaum was due to matriculate in the fall of 2005, everything changed when she was hit by a car while jogging in Brookline. The accident fractured her skull, broke her pelvis and tore her knee to shreds. The flesh and bones would heal – she knew – but Molly also lost her sense of smell in the accident. And not being able to smell meant not being able to cook. She dropped her cooking school plans, quit her restaurant job, and sank into a depression. In her new memoir, Molly tells the heartwarming story of what came next. And Molly Birnbaum – author of Season to Taste: How I Lost My Sense of Smell and Found My Way – who also writes the popular food blog My Madeleine and is an associate editor at America’s Test Kitchen – joins us.
