Georgeanne Brennan is a widely published food and garden writer and culinary teacher who divides her time between her small farm in northern California and her longtime home in Provence. She writes for such magazines as Metropolitan Home, Bon Appetit, Fine Cooking, and Country Gardens, and her work appears regularly in the San Francisco Chronicle and the New York Times. Her many books include Potager: Fresh Garden Cooking in the French Style; The Food and Flavors of Haute Provence, for which she won the 1998 James Beard Award for Best International Cookbook; and Aperitif, the recipient of the 1998 Julia Child Award for Best Wine or Beverage Book. Chuck Williams, general editor, has helped to revolutionize cooking in America. He opened his first store in the California wine country town of Sonoma in 1956, later moving it to San Francisco. More than 150 stores are now open in the United States, and the company's catalog has an annual circulation of over 42 million. The philosophy behind his success is aptly summed up by the title of the cookbook he wrote to chronicle Williams-Sonoma's first 40 years: Celebrating the Pleasures of Cooking.Brennan, Georgeanne is the author of 'Savoring France Recipes and Reflections on French Cooking' with ISBN 9780848725853 and ISBN 0848725859.
