In April 2012, I gave French CBC radio show Bien dans son assiette a 10-minute interview about a topic few dare to discuss: cookbook ghostwriting. One of the many hats I wear as a food writer, actually. Although fans would like to believe famous chefs write their own books, most do not. And if several journalists decry the role of ghostwriters, I think it’s pretty harmless and often justified (most chefs are great cooks but lousy writers), especially compared to ghostcooking. But that’s a whole other subject.
