David Leite

My guest today is David Leite, the founder of the James Beard award-winning website Leite’s Culinaria, and he’s the author of the cookbook “The New Portuguese Table.” He often contributes to NPR’s “The Splendid Table.” His new book, “Notes on a Banana: A Memoir of Food, Love, and Manic Depression,” is due out April 11th. On this inspirational conversation, David shares his struggles with fear, self-diagnosing himself with bipolar disorder, and his ability to thrive in the face of such setbacks.
