If you’ve searched for a recipe on the Internet over the last decade, you’ve likely landed on Smitten Kitchen. Deb Perelman started her wildly popular food blog in 2006, when she began chronicling her cooking adventures from her diminutive New York City apartment kitchen.
Eleven years, hundreds of original recipes, and two cookbooks later, Perelman is still blogging from her apartment, which she now shares with her husband and two children. She recently stopped by the test kitchen while in Boston on her book tour for her second book, Smitten Kitchen Every Day. Between taking a tour of our new space and partaking in tastings of in-development recipes for ceviche and flan, Perelman shared her thoughts on her inspirations, designing recipes for real life, and more.
