Allison Robicelli has, to put it mildly, an incredible professional résumé, excelling in:
The cooking world, co-owning a bakery that landed on must-visit-in-NYC lists and being nominated for a James Beard award.
The literary world, publishing the critically acclaimed cookbook/memoir Robicelli's: A Love Story, With Cupcakes and writing for Taste, Serious Eats, and Thrillist.
And the podcast world, co-hosting The Robicelli Argument Clinic Podcast with her husband (who is no slouch himself).
So it’s not surprising, we guess, that a publishing company reached out to her on Twitter with an invitation to write a book highlighting the 100 best restaurants in Washington, D.C.
What is surprising ... at least to those not well-versed in the modern economics of publishing houses ... are the terms and budget they offered her.
As suspected, I have been given an offer to write a book highlighting the 100 best restaurants in Washington DC FOR ZERO DOLLARS. And but of course I will be tweeting out all the details, because I am sick & tired of being asked to work for free. A THREAD: https://t.co/GgGXTMeUhb— Allison Robicelli (@robicellis) July 10, 2019
