2011 Book Festival Author
Joan Peterson

Author Biography

Joan Peterson received her B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. from UW-Madison then worked as a scientist in cancer-related research for the UW-Madison Biochemistry Department. In 1999, she retired from this position to devote time to her two other passions: food and travel. As a result, Peterson created the Eat Smart series of culinary travel guidebooks featuring international destinations. Eat Smart in France, by Ronnie Hess, is the 10th book in this series. The Eat Smart books have received numerous awards as both travel books and food guides. Most notably, Eat Smart in Peru won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award for Best Culinary Travel Guide in the World in 2007. Peterson's next book, Eat Smart in Norway, is scheduled for release in the spring of 2011.
