Episode 70: Asking For Money, Standing Your Ground, And Paying It Forward With Emily Fiffer Of Botanica
This is the last episode of the season. I’m taking a mini-break, which actually isn’t a break, because I’m going to be working on the new podcast series during that time. So it’s more of a you-won’t-hear-from-me-for-a-few-weeks break.
The new podcast has an official title! It’s called “The Cookbook Deal / Also The Weirdest Year Of My Life” and will be a 7-episode series launching the second week of January. I’ve recorded the entire year of making a cookbook – from getting the deal to recipe testing dramarama to trying to finish my manuscript during a hurricane. I recorded it all. And actually, I’m still recording.
I’ll be giving you the first episode in the OPP feed, but then it will live in The Cookbook Deal feed for the remainder of the season. If you’re signed up for the OPP newsletter, you’ll be notified at soon as it launches. You can do that here, if you’re not signed up already.
OK, today’s guest! I’m talking to Emily Fiffer, co-founder of Botanica (the online food magazine and soon-to-be restaurant).
Emily and I talk about what tough lessons she’s learned from opening a restaurant, the not-so-warm-welcome she’s received from some men in the restaurant industry, the importance of being aware of your strengths and weaknesses, and the celebrity she’d most like to watch eating her food (yes, in a creepy way).
