The Road to Self-Recognition #6: Interview with Dr. Alessandra Pino about A Gothic Cookbook

“The Road to Self-Recognition: Interviews with Researchers, Writers and Psychologists” is a video podcast created by Alice in Gothic Land. This is a space where you can listen to series of interviews/lessons where we analyse horror and the Gothic from the other side. The aim is to help you keep learning aspects of your own identity.

In Episode 6 “Interview with Dr. Alessandra Pino”, I interview Dr. Alessandra Pino. We talk about her new book “A Gothic Cookbook”, written in conjunction with Ella Buchan with illustrations by Lee Henry. It is a feast for the senses, an illustrated cookbook inspired by classic and contemporary Gothic texts. We also discuss the Gothic side of food and what that tells us about our identity.
