Real People. Real Advice. It’s the Maine Thing.
I write about food, talk about food, and think about food pretty much all the time. Mostly, I write cookbooks, 14 of them to date, and I am the "Resident Chef" for WBUR's award-winning show, Here and Now. I also write about food and the people who create good food for newspapers and magazines such as Down East, The New York Times, Bon Appetit, Food and Wine, Boston Globe, Culture and Taste of the Seacoast. My latest book, Notes from a Maine Kitchen, is my personal love letter to Maine. It is filled with essays and recipes that reflect the seasonal, local foods found in the state that I have called home for three decades. I also spend time at Central School in South Berwick, growing fresh vegetables and teaching cooking classes to pre-K through 3rd graders. The focus of all my work is simple, delicious, healthy eating.
