Meet the Author

Linda Blocker taught middle and high school mathematics for ten years before joining the faculty of The Culinary Institute of America. During her three years at the CIA, she taught culinary math. She spent many years involved in her family's gourmet food business, Meredith Mountain Farms.

Julia Hill taught cost control and culinary math at The Culinary Institute of America for fifteen years. Prior to her teaching position at the CIA, she was a public accountant and restaurant manager.

Founded in 1946, The Culinary Institute of America is an independent, not-for-profit college offering bachelor's and associate degrees in culinary arts and baking and pastry arts. A network of more than 37,000 alumni in foodservice and hospitality has helped the CIA earn its reputation as the world's premier culinary college. Courses for foodservice professionals are offered at the college's main campus in Hyde Park, New York, and at The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, in St. Helena, California. Greystone also offers baking and pastry, advanced culinary arts, and wine certifications.
