Stephanie Lau is on a mission to bring people together. A CPA by day, she started a monthly potluck called Cookbook Club out of her one-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn. Today, the Cookbook Club events draw dozens of attendees.

In this episode, host Abena Anim-Somuah dives deep into the world of cookbooks with Stephanie. They discuss the titles Stephanie grew up with, including Joy of Cooking and Mark Bittman’s How to Cook Everything, and why it’s important for her to feature authors of color like Hetty Lui McKinnon and Natasha Pickowicz. Stephanie also talks about balancing her full-time job as an accountant with her new role as a community-builder.
