Kat Johnson sits down with Matt and Ted Lee to talk about the origins of their mail-order boiled peanut company, their Cookbook Boot Camp, and their very exciting forthcoming project, Hotbox: Inside Catering, the Food World’s Riskiest Business, which involved the brothers embedding themselves inside the world of Manhattan’s fast-paced catering business.
About Matt & Ted Lee
Siblings Matt and Ted grew up in Charleston, South Carolina. When they left to attend colleges in the Northeast, they missed the foods of their hometown and founded The Lee Bros. Boiled Peanuts Catalogue, a mail-order catalogue for southern pantry staples like stone-ground grits, fig preserves, and, of course, boiled peanuts. When an editor of a travel magazine asked them to write a story about road-tripping their home state in search of great food, they embarked on a second career as food and travel journalists.
