Molly's writing has appeared in many publications, including The New York Times, Elle magazine, and the San Francisco Chronicle. She is a regular contributor to Edible San Francisco and is also the former staff food writer at Sunset magazine.
Molly attended Reed College in Portland, Oregon before getting a graduate degree in French history at Stanford University. She lived in France several times during her studies and while there she learned first-hand the culinary strength of a few well-chosen ingredients prepared with care. She attended culinary school in San Francisco, where she still lives on a hill with lovely views that is, most importantly, equidistant between two excellent farmers markets.
From Molly Watson:
Welcome to Local Foods! Eating locally is eating seasonally. When each ingredient is at its absolute best, cooking's a snap. I love sharing ideas for simple meals and easy dishes that encourage people to get in the kitchen, make their own food, and eat with the seasons.
