    Turns out, lots of chefs aren't as great at writing as they are at cooking. So how do they bring their culinary visions to the pages of a cookbook? With help from people like JJ Goode, who help them translate their stories and recipes for home cooks. JJ joined Amanda and Daniel in studio to talk about how he got into the world of cookbook ghostwriting, and why even as a self-proclaimed lazy cook, he still loves checking out wildly difficult recipes. Then, we get into the biggest stories of the week, from a super expensive strawberry, to an alt milk burn, and a definitive ranking of all the best iced coffee drinks out there.
