Lisa Donovan joins Denise this week for an open discussion on women in kitchens among many other subjects, including chin hairs! Lisa is a pastry chef and James Beard award winning writer. She’s weaved in and out of the restaurant industry, writing recipes and contributing to the larger annals of American baking with her equally reverent approach to both technique and heritage. Lisa has helmed the pastry kitchens of some of the most important restaurants in the country and has kept her whole life afloat by making, writing on and thinking about food - including consulting, recipe development, selling pies out of the trunk of her car and creating the now retired yet really wonderful Buttermilk Road Sunday Suppers. Lisa now writes full time and is very glad for it. Her first book, Our Lady of Perpetual Hunger, was born August 4, 2020.
