Author Biography

Jeremiah Tower is the forefather of California cuisine and the author of the James Beard Award–winning cookbook Jeremiah Tower's New American Classics. The Beard Foundation has named him Outstanding Chef in America and Regional Best Chef California. He began his culinary career in 1972 as the co-owner and executive chef of Chez Panisse, and has opened numerous highly acclaimed restaurants in San Francisco and around the world. CNN recently made a documentary on his career, to debut in the spring of 2016.

Libby VanderPloeg lives in Brooklyn, NY. Her work comes out of her deep affinity for storytelling, music, letterforms, printed ephemera, and wildlife. None of these works could have been made without the world's finest brioche and several good, strong cups of coffee.
