A Conversation with Meg Cotner, author of “Food Lovers’ Guide to Queens”, July 18, 2013
This is one of those programs that I absolutely love doing. First, and foremost, it’s about a topic I love: food. In this case: GREAT food.
What I also love about it is the writing. Yes, I guess I should tell you, if you haven’t already read the title of this entry, that tonight I’ll be talking to Meg Cotner about her recently released book: Food Lovers’ Guide to Queens. Meg is a superb writer. She’s upbeat, interesting, entertaining and, above all, informative. Not only did I learn scads about the great food and where to find it in Queens—I also learned about Tamara Reynolds and her Underground Supper Club, how to eat a soup dumpling and the Ganesh Hindu Temple in Flushing.
The worst part of this was that every time I picked up the book and started reading I had to resist the urge to hop into my car and drive down to Queens to find some of these places and test the wares I was reading about. Actually it ended up being a toss-up over which was worse between that and my constant drooling. Not a pretty sight.
