Maggie Green is an editor of the 75th anniversary edition of Joy of Cooking. Her dedication to the editorial process for this revision gave co-author Ethan Becker reason to christen Maggie "the guardian angel of this [75th anniversary] revision."
In addition to leading the revision for the family, Maggie joyfully edited, expanded and reorganized three of Joy's classic reference chapters: Know Your Ingredients, Cooking Methods and Techniques, and Menus. Her other contributions to Joy include written material on "cook for a day, eat for a week," children's parties, family meals, as well as several "About" sections in the Vegetable, Meat and Sauce chapters.
Maggie has appeared nationally on the Food Network's Unwrapped and The Diane Rehm Show, and locally in Cincinnati WNKU's Speaking Frankly and Local 12's The Dish. Maggie writes a monthly column, "From My Kitchen Table," for Inside Your Town, a community newspaper.
Maggie has a B.S. in Food and Nutrition and an A.S. in Culinary Arts Management. Prior to her work as an editor for Joy of Cooking, Maggie's 15 years of food and nutrition experience included work as a personal chef, nutrition and culinary consultant, food service director, and nutrition support specialist. Maggie lives across the Ohio river from Cincinnati in the suburb of Ft. Wright, Kentucky, with her own personal taste test team: her husband of 19 years, Warren, and their three young, but adventurous eaters, ages 9, 7, and 5.
