About Keda Black

Keda Black

Keda Black likes to say she learned to cook by eating with her grandmother, listening to her mother, and following recipes to the letter. Her books, including The Student's Cookbook and Sauce Basics impart to readers a repertoire of simple, versatile, and varied dishes that are mostly timeless classics enhanced by little ideas picked up here and there.
