In this episode, Natalia, Niki, and Neil discuss the history of cookbooks and the question of recipes as intellectual property.
Here are some links and references mentioned during this week’s show:
- As online recipes and cookbooks become big business, issues of plagiarism and copyright are becoming more common. Natalia referred to Helen Zoe Veit’s Smithsonian article and larger body of work and, along with Niki, to this history of cookbooks in the Atlantic.

- Natalia recommended Amanda Mull’s Atlantic article, “Peloton Is Stuck, Just Like the Rest of Us.”
- Neil discussed Jonathan D. Sarna’s Forward article, “How Hanukkah Came To The White House,” and his column at The Week, “The History and Gravity of Hanukkah In The White House.”
