Cookbook author Judith Fertig grew up in the Midwest, went to college and cooking school in Europe, and now lives in Kansas City. Her cookbooks reflect her love of bread, baking, barbecue, and the fabulous foods of the Heartland.
You can read some of her cookbooks like novels--the fabulously photographed Heartland, the award-winning and James Beard Awards-nominated Prairie Home Cooking, the encylopedic All-American Desserts, and Prairie Home Breads.
Others reflect her ongoing reign as a tiara-totin' BBQ Queen, along with co-author and co-queen Karen Adler, from BBQ Bash, 300 Big & Bold Barbecue Recipes, and Weeknight Grilling to 25 Essentials Planking and 25 Essentials Grilling Fish. Do you know the 4 BBQ Queen Waves for when you're famous for barbecue??? (Here are a few hints: Wiping the windshield, screwing in a lightbulb, fluttering the air. . . .)
And some of her cookbooks just make you want to get in that kitchen and stir up something new--with one-bowl, no-knead bread in 200 Fast & Easy Artisan Breads or with your "electric assisant" in The Artisan Bread Machine.
