Published Works

Among the talents that many Dames possess is the ability to write. Those of us in the publishing industry have a love for the written word and the desire to express ourselves through that vehicle. We are comprised of newspaper writers and editors, magazine writers and editors, internet writers and editors, cookbook authors, food, wine and travel writers, bloggers, food historians, book editors and publishers, and freelance writers and editors.

Below is a sampling of the wide range of cookbooks and articles that some of us Dames have written. It is an impressive compilation of what we have presented to the world to be read, poured over, and simply enjoyed.
