Writer, teacher, and award-winning author of The Seasonal Jewish Kitchen: A Fresh Take on Tradition and The Santa Monica Farmers' Market Cookbook: Seasonal Foods, Simple Recipes, and Stories from the Market and Farm, Amelia Saltsman is passionate about helping everyday cooks make the connection between small-farmed foods and real-life meals. In her warm style, Amelia streamlines today's desire for healthier, sustainable foods; the need to get dinner on the table; and the longing for rich holiday traditions in one seamless whole.

Amelia has been featured in such diverse outlets as Parade Magazine, Yahoo! Food, Food52, Fit Pregnancy, Vegetarian Times, US Airways, USA Today, Jewish Chronicle of London, The Jerusalem Post, and Los Angeles Magazine. Her work has appeared in Bon Appetit, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Food52, The Kitchn, Cooking Light, Huffington Post, Jewish Journal, National Geographic Traveler, and more. Amelia is a frequent guest on KCRW's Good Food and has appeared on Hallmark's Home & Family and Good Day L.A. Known as an energetic and inspiring teacher, she teaches at such venues as Google's corporate offices and Rancho La Puerta.

A longtime champion of local family farms, fair food, and farmers' markets, Amelia is committed ot raising the food literacy rate; knowing how, where, and by whome our food is grown; knowing how to cook a simple, healthy meal; and understanding the historical, local, and global impact our food choices have on our families and communities. She served 10 years on the California Certified Farmers' Market Advisory Committee and Direct Marketing Task Force; contributed to The Sage Encyclopedia of Food Issues; and empowers people to confidently "read" their farmers' market.

"Great taste and good farming practices go hand in hand," says Amelia. "When the raw ingredients taste good, it's the most obvious sign that our food has been grown sustainably and locally, and that it's at its freshest and most nutritious."
