As a helpful person added in the reviews, this is actually Alice B. Toklas reading from her own cookbook.

Oh how I wish that her talking about her first meeting with Gertrude Stein ♥️ was longer. I could have listened to that so much longer.

I forgot that the internet archive has audio, too.

Thanks for posting this.

:) There are some hidden gems on the internet archive for sure. Elastisearch is garbage, so sometimes when I’m taking a break I’ll just pick a category to browse through that is less likely to be overrun by porn (it’s easy to tell because the most viewed items at that moment in a category are listed first), and just scroll down its default page for however long my tea takes to finish.
