Molly Watson, Guide to Local Foods for About.com, is a writer, a recipe developer, an avid cook, and a frequent locavore. Here she explores the wide and wonderful world of local foods with tips for finding local foods and, most importantly, delicious recipes so you can cook and eat the local food you find.
In addition to her work for About.com, Molly is a freelance writer. Her writing and recipe work have 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 a 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.
