You've been smitten with her since the early 2000s, and today Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen is my patient on Lunch Therapy. We talk everything from her efforts to recreate the brown bread she ate in Ireland, whether or not she's the heir to Ina Garten, and how her German-Jewish mother found salt and pepper to be "edgy." We also cover her brief career as an art therapist, what it means to have a food blog in 2019, and how she deals with people feeling like they know her.

Hi, I'm Adam Roberts, and I like analyzing people's lunches. As one of the first food bloggers and a comedy writer for film and TV, I'm fascinated by the ways in which what we eat reveal who we are. Join me as I playfully tease out people's psychological issues as we talk about what everyone eats for lunch. DISCLAIMER: I am not a licensed lunch therapist. I do, however, make a killer BLT.
