About Jennifer McLagan

Courageous, and contrarian, Jennifer McLagan has more than 35 years experience as a writer, chef, caterer, and food stylist. Equipped with a quirky sense of humor, a taste for the bizarre, and bowerbird tendencies, she is the author of two books, Bones and Fat, which delve into the history, myth, and culture surrounding food. Although both titles have won numerous awards, her publisher just wishes they’d sell better. Her next book, Odd Bits, will be published in September 2011.
