Lucinda Scala Quinn is a firm believer that food, security, and love are entwined in the meals we cook and serve to our family and friends. Her childhood passion for cooking blossomed into a career as a chef, teacher, author and food editor. She currently serves as senior vice president and executive editorial director for food at Martha Stewart Living and host of the television show, Mad Hungry: Bringing Back the Family Meal. Lucinda has authored four books and is currently working on her fifth. All of Lucinda’s books and projects feature the food she cooks and loves, with recipes that are big on flavor and low on fuss.
