Meet the Author

The late Louise Tate King cooked professionally for more than thirty years. She was one of the cofounders of Blueberry Hill Farm in Chilmark, Martha's Vineyard, and for several years owned and operated a highly successful French provincial-style restaurant in Edgartown during the summer-into-early-fall season. She studied at the Cordon Bleu in Paris, spent considerable time visiting the great vineyards in France and Italy, and supervised various restaurants in the West Indies during the winter months. Jean Stewart Wexler grew up in North Carolina and Kentucky. After living and working briefly in Italy and Switzerland, she moved to Washington, D.C., and then on to New York City, where she worked for various book publishers. She now lives on Martha's Vineyard year-round with her husband and her poodle, tending to several large flower gardens, fishing, studying jazz piano, writing gardening pieces for the Vineyard Gazette and other publications, and--of course-- cooking. She lives in Vineyard Haven, Martha's Vineyard.
