Georgeanne Brennan

An award-winning cookbook and garden author, journalist, and consultant, Georgeanne Brennan and her husband live on a small farm in Northern California, where she cooks and writes. Her large potager, a year-round kitchen garden, inspired by her years of living in Provence, where she still has a home, is a source of daily pleasure to her and a main attraction for all who visit. Her most recent publication is The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook, co-authored with Ann M. Evans. Photo credit: Mark Bennington

The gardening-gathering gene exists in all of us; I suspect, so does a gene for appreciating fresh picked local food.
