Brooklyn Breakfast with Aysen Gerlach

Feb 25, 2019, 04:00 AM

Welcome to a brand new series of Lecker! We're in NYC for this first episode (South Brooklyn to be exact) as I meet Aysen Gerlach, an artist and cheesemonger whose illustrated food memoir Food Stuff caught my eye in the MoMA PS1 bookstore. She makes me bacon, egg and cheese on a biscuit as we talk baking tricks, the significance of breakfast sandwiches to East-Coasters and how she came to make a book about her life in food.

Produced and hosted by Lucy Dearlove
