Joanne Weir is a television personality, James Beard Award-winning cookbook author, international cooking teacher and chef/partner of Copita in Sausalito, California. In her public television series, “Joanne Weir’s Cooking Class” and her new series “Joanne Weir’s Cooking Confidence”, her love of teaching cooking takes center stage. Awarded the very first IACP Julia Child Cooking Teacher Award of Excellence, Joanne shares a lifetime of experience that flavors everything she touches.
The Chez Panisse alum brings her deep knowledge of the Mediterranean Diet to her inspired Chef Menus at Home recipes. A Farro, Cheddar, Walnut and Apple Salad brings together both new and familiar flavors with delicious results. Grilled Polenta Walnut Pound Cake with Strawberries and Cream is a nod to the classic cake, but grilled cornmeal gives it sun-splashed flair! Her Chocolate Walnut Pavés with Nocino Scented Cream are delightfully light and fluffy, and chock-full of crunchy walnuts.
