In the often depressingly formulaic world of food publishing one name stands out as a beacon of individuality. The idiosyncratic publishing house Grub Street publishes books on two subjects: military history and food. The food side is run by the feisty and single-minded Anne Dolamore.
Anne has proved that with persistence and guts it's possible not only to survive but actually thrive in the shark infested waters of big publishers - and in the process win countless awards. In this funny, dynamic and telling interview, she talks of the pros and cons of being an independent publisher, her criteria for choosing what to publish (surprising yet makes perfect sense), the people she admires, the writers she wishes she had published and the future of cookery books.
