Martha Rose Shulman
Culinary Wellness Contributor
Martha Rose has written over 25 cookbooks, including “The Vegetarian Feast” and more than 1,500 recipes for cooking.nytimes.com. She is largely known for her healthy approach to cooking using seasonal and organic foods with an emphasis on low-fat versions of Mediterranean and Mexican style cuisines. Martha Rose’s career began as a writer. Learning to cook alongside her stepmother gave her an engaging writing subject, and she soon moved to Austin, Texas, and Paris, France, where she lived for 12 years, to absorb the elegances of food. Her culinary writing career began with her first cookbook, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She has collaborated and co-authored cookbooks, which earned her international recognition and was awarded two James Beard Awards for co-authoring “The Secrets of Baking” with Sherry Yard and “The Art of French Pastry” with Jacquy Pfeiffer.
