Joanne Weir is an award-winning cookbook author, PBS star and producer, culinary instructor and restaurant owner. As a culinary adventurer, we caught her between trips to talk about her beginnings on the family farm, her time at Chez Panisse, her latest book, Kitchen Gypsy, her latest culinary adventures and the guests that join her. It is a wonder that she has the energy to do everything on her plate, especially to the extent that each of her projects take a huge amount of time and planning. We were certainly lucky to get on her calendar to record this episode.
