One thing we’ve learned from working with Nathan Myhrvold is that if you get him talking about a topic that interests him (and there are many, many, many topics to choose from), he’ll go on and on until someone comes and rushes him off to another meeting. You’ll probably learn something in the process, too, even if it’s a subject you think you know everything about. Recently, Eater.com‘s Paula Forbes got him talking about his cookbook collection: which ones are his favorites, which he’s most sentimental about, and why he doesn’t think much of the barbecue books out there.
