Cooking With Proust

In an NPR interview, Russian American writer Anya von Bremzens explains that the origin of her new memoir, Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking, can be found in Proust’s famous madeleine. In her memoir, she focuses on the connection between food and memory, and, like the narrator of Swann’s Way, she is fascinated by the way certain tastes can transport us to thoughts of childhood.

Listen to the interview here.
