British-born food writer Jacqueline Mallorca created and wrote the first Williams-Sonoma mail order catalog, and still produces food and cookware-related copy for this now world-famous company today. She acted as James beard’s West Coast editorial assistant for several years, working mainly on his syndicated newspaper column, and has produced numerous articles for the San Francisco Chronicle food section and other culinary publications. Currently an associate editor for Gluten-Free Living magazine, she has written material for a number of food and wine producers coast to coast, including California’s Jordan Winery and New York’s Dufour Pastry Company.
To date, she had written, co-authored, edited or illustrated twelve cookbooks. The most recent, The Wheat-Free Cook, Gluten-Free Recipes for Everyone (author/illustrator), HarperCollins/Wm. Morrow, was released in March, 2007. It went into five printings within the first five months, and by December was selected by Sara Moulton on ABC’s “Good Morning America” as one of the top ten cookbooks of the year.
