Author, food journalist, content creator and social media celebrity Katie Quinn just finished her first personal book tour in the United States to promote her book “Cheese, Wine, and Bread: Discovering The Magic of Fermentation in England, Italy, and France.”

She recently spent time in Manhattan and made some personal appearances in the Midwest before heading back to her current home in Italy. This was her first time to promote her book in person in America since it was published by Harper Collins/William Morrow in April of 2021.

Her book, which was three years in the making, has garnered outstanding reviews from a wide variety of publications such as The Wall Street Journal and Real Simple Magazine. It is touted as one of the top cookbooks of 2021.

The book is a combination of personal stories, observations, personality profiles, scientific facts, and recipes. It is a narrative cookbook with stunning photography and illustrations that leap off the pages.

While visiting Ohio, Katie stopped by the WOUB studios to give our Spectrum Podcast a taste of her book, update us on its success, and share with us some holiday recipes that might be fun for the whole family to make.

We talk about her career, her writing, the success of her “QKatie” YouTube channel and her passion for both storytelling and food.

She also discusses some of the difficulties in trying to promote a book through American media while residing in Italy. She shares some of her humorous and fretful moments of being on live television from her small kitchen in Europe.
