About the Author

MICHELLE MCKENZIE is the program director and an instructor at 18 Reasons, a cooking school, event venue, and community gathering place in San Francisco's Mission District, founded by the well-known Bi-Rite Market. A chemistry major turned culinary school graduate, Michelle cut her teeth at Blue Hill at Stone Barns before opening her first restaurant in Atlanta. After introducing thousands of Southerners to amaranth with pickled ramps and walnuts and the like, she became a private chef for high-profile clients, including Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. Her desire to teach drew her westward, where she lives today a few blocks from 18 Reasons, melding home, work, and community.
