About the Author:

Janet Ballantyne began cooking at age 12 when she spent a lot of time in the kitchen with her Austrian-born mother and grandmother who studied cooking in Vienna. She paid for college by working in the kitchen of a Vermont Country Inn, and then was employed by a catering business in London, England. She was able to begin her own successful catering business, "A Catered Affair," at the same time she began giving cooking demonstrations regularly on local television in 1980. She then earned a regular spot on the nationally syndicated Joy of Gardening TV program and authored Garden Way's Red & Green Tomato Cookbook, Desserts from the Garden and The Joy of Gardening Cookbook. Janet lives in Shelburne, Vermont where she works as a home economist and teaches at a local high school.
