Joanne Weir, television personality, James Beard Award-winning cookbook author and judge, international cooking instructor and chef, returns to the show after nearly three years. Joanne's love of teaching her craft working side-by-side is apparent in her successful PBS series, "Joanne Weir's Cooking Class," and her new series, "Joanne Weir's Cooking Confidence." Joanne was awarded the very first IACP Julia Child Cooking Teacher Award of Excellence. Her first book, "From Tapas to Meze" was nominated for a James Beard Award and selected by Julia Child as one of her 12 personal favorites, out of 1000 cookbooks published that year (1994).
She has published many books, including James Beard nominated, "You Say Tomato," and she brought her cooking talents to television in the PBS series, "Weir Cooking in the Wine Country," shot on location in the Napa Valley. Her companion book, "Weir's More Cooking in the Wine Country," went on to garnedr a James Beard Award nomination and an IACP Cookbook Award nomination. Joanne's adopted hometown, San Francisco, is the culinary setting for "Weir Cooking in the City," her 26-part PBS series and James Beard Award winning companion cookbook. Her latest cookbooks include, "Wine Country Cooking," and "Tequila: A Guide to Types, Flights, Cocktails and Bites."
With the launching of a new wine and new restaurant soon, we'll have lots to catch up on!
JEFF SIEGEL, our own Wine Curmudgeon should be joining us as well.
