We celebrate writers and cookbooks in this issue, starting with Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner, the best friends who brought us HBO’s Girls. They talk about their partnership, their show, and their food misadventures, including Lena’s brownie mishap with Nora Ephron. Also, Dominique Crenn, Alice Waters and Nigella Lawson discuss life and their latest books. Ruth Reichl reflects on the cookbook she wrote in the 1970s, cookbook queen Melissa Clark explains how she’s written 30+ books, and Chef Angela Dimayuga embraces the word fusion.

A word from editors, Kerry & Claudia:
“Today, if you have a big idea, it’s easier than ever to bring it to life. With Kickstarter and social media, entrepreneurs and doers can make things happen in a way they couldn’t just a few years ago.
If you’re plugging away at your pet project or trying to hatch your dream, we’re rooting for you and we hope the women in this issue inspire you. Who knows? Maybe we’ll be reading about you one day. “
