“Always, Only, At Least”
This edition of Tell Us Something was recorded on October 9th, 2014 at the Top Hat Lounge in Missoula, MT. The theme was “The Things We Carry”.
Jeremy Smith shares his story “Always, Only, At Least”. Finally arriving in London to be with his girlfriend after a long-distance relationship, Jeremy instead takes the train to Amsterdam for an extravagant formal dinner. Over the course of the next year he cooks all over the world, memorizing portions of Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking by Marcella Hazan.
Jeremy Smith has written for Gourmet, Saveur, the Christian Science Monitor, the Chicago Tribune, Montana Magazine, and Discover, among many other publications. His first book, Growing a Garden City, was one of Booklist’s top 10 books on the environment for 2011. His new book, Epic Measures, about the largest study of human health ever undertaken, will be published next spring by HarperCollins. He lives in the Lower Rattlesnake neighborhood with his wife Crissie, niece Haley, and four-year-old daughter Rasa. Check him out over at jeremynsmith.com.
