What goes into reviving a long-out-of-print cookbook? Ask Arthur Healey! In this episode, Jeff & Ryan talk to the man responsible for bringing Jeff’s cookbook, Secrets of the M*A*S*H Mess: The Lost Recipes of Private Igor back from the paperback graveyard. We dive into the challenges of acquiring publishing rights, searching for photos from M*A*S*H scenes that don’t exist, adding new recipes (and losing a few), and spending hundreds of hours restoring a beloved book. Mister Rogers even contributes to the story, too!
