Americans, more than any other culture on earth, are cook-book cooks…–John Thorne








John Thorne is a culinary writer born in Quincy, Massachusetts, who has written a number of best-selling books on food history and culture, including The Outlaw and Pot on the Fire: Further Exploits of a Renegade Cook.

A graduate of Amherst College, he began to teach himself to cook frugally while living briefly in New York City’s Lower East Side, where he sought to become a writer of some sort as a very young man during the 1960s.
