Wow — a big, warm bowl of thanks to Helen Rosner, at Grub Street Chicago, for posting this extensive interview, which was conducted via telephone at 9:30 AM yesterday, about 4 minutes after I crawled out of bed and only 2 inches into my first cup of coffee. I am amazed I sound as coherent as I do.
It’s kind of appropriate that you went with bread and soup as the theme for a hunger fundraiser, since they’re both inexpensive to make and very nutritious.
There was definitely a conscious connection there – there’s definitely the soup kitchen connotation there. I do feel very corny and earnest about Soup and Bread. It’s been actually very very fun and fulfilling as a project for me, just as a way of building community, or whatever.
OK never mind. I take that back.
