About Us

It all started when...

Officially, lizzyoung bookseller started in January 2012.

Culinary books give you a window into the cultural narrative of the specific time and place in which the book was composed. I have always been in love with cookbooks. When I was an assistant editor at Gourmet Magazine my desk was in the middle of their library. Imagine a job where they pay you to be surrounded by cookbooks. Well, now I spend most days immersed in food and drink culture; researching and cataloguing.

You can now find us minding our new "brick & mortar" shop, here in brooklyn. Please stop in and check out our newest treasures.
