Future plans

Recommended Posts

Hi Amanda,

What plans do you have for the future? Do you want to stay at the NYT for the next 20-30 years? Be the editor of a food magazine? Write other books? What influence, if any, do you wish to have on the food world?

Sorry for these multiple questions, but they can all be answered globally I think. Thank you for your participation in this Q&A.

Sorry, I don't have any advice! You have a fantastic job and should keep it as long as it challenges you. But since many writers see the NYT as the ultimate publication in which to place an article, I was wondering what becomes the next goal once you are on staff there, especially at a young age.

NYT aside, are you working on another book or similar long-term projects? Would you like to focus on one cuisine or style of cookbooks (I mean this in a Paula Wolfert or Diana Kennedy way, not in a limiting sense)?

right now, i just finished a book based on the nyt magazine columns. it's called "cooking for mr. latte". (it's discussed in some of the other q&a questions) i don't have any other books planned at the moment. i don't want to write books just to be published. this may be foolish, but i can't imagine writing a book unless i really cared about the subject. it's a lot of work.
