About the author (1992)

Few have done more to define how Americans prepare food than Barbara Kafka, whose IACP and James Beard award-winning books "Roasting" and "Microwave Gourmet" made two underutilized techniques central to everyday cooking. Ms. Kafka is a former food editor of "Vogue" and a frequent contributor to "The New York Times". She lives in New York and Vermont. The author of Artisan's "Soup: A Way of Life" and "Vegetable Love", Barbara Kafka's immense achievements were recognized once more in 2007, when the James Beard Foundation gave her its Lifetime Achievement Award. Her most recent book is "The Intolerant Gourmet: Glorious Food Without Gluten & Lactose".
