“On a drizzly morning in August, 2005,” writes Molly Birnbaum, “I was hit by a car while jogging near my mother’s home.” An aspiring chef working at a high-end bistro in Boston, she soon discovered she would recover from the injuries, but writes “it was only later that I discovered the real tragedy: I had lost my sense of smell.” Her story is riveting. BlogHer co-founder Jory Des Jardins talks with Molly Birnbaum about her upcoming debut book Season to Taste: How I Lost My Sense of Smell and Found My Way, a personal inquiry into the science, psychology and social history of scent. Facing a situation few of us can really imagine, explore what Molly learned and how food, cooking, and the senses played a key role in her recovery.
