About the author (2011)

Ken Haedrich is an internationally acclaimed food and travel writer, cooking teacher, and cookbook author. A native of New Jersey and former Navy Seabee, Haedrich has traveled the world, living everywhere from the rich flatlands of Mississippi to the lush tropical island of Diego Garcia. Now, settled in both Annapolis, Maryland, and the placid town of Rumney, New Hampshire, Haedrich believes that long, bleak winters are perfect conditions for igniting any ardent home cook's creativity. The author of eight cookbooks, Haedrich won an IACP Cookbook Award for Home for the Holidays (Bantam, 1992), and Country Baking (Bantam, 1990) was nominated for the same award. The New York Times voted Country Baking a top holiday pick, and Publishers Weekly named it one of the top five cookbooks of 1990. In addition, Haedrich wrote The Maple Syrup Cookbook (Storey Books, 1989), Country Breakfasts (Bantam, 1994), Simple Desserts (Bantam, 1995, out of print), Feeding the Healthy Vegetarian Family (Bantam, 1998), Soup Makes the Meal (Harvard Common Press, 2001), and Pie (Harvard Common Press, 2004). Ken Haedrich is a regular contributor to Bon Appétit, Cooking Light, Better Homes & Gardens, Vegetarian Times, Eating Well, Family Fun, and Disney magazine. He has also written for Food & Wine, Horticulture, Parenting, Yankee, and National Geographic Traveler and has appeared on several cooking shows and “Good Morning America.”
