In today’s episode, the intrepid Emily Gould meets Marcy Dermansky, the author of Bad Marie, which is about a woman who gets out of prison who is not so good at child care! So of course, here in our glamorous test kitchen, they make mac and cheese and instant pudding. Cooking the Books is directed by Valerie Temple and shot and edited by Andrew Gauthier.
