Mark Scarbrough

I'm the writing half of a best-selling cookbook team (with Bruce Weinstein, my partner and the chef in our duo). Once upon a time, I was an academic, working in nineteenth century American literature, teaching in Austin, when writing slowly overtook my life. I started providing content for a little start-up called AOL, started writing screenplays for some fancy-pants actor/directors, and finally chucked it all to move to New York. (I love being a cliché.) These days, Bruce and I find our peace on ten acres in northern Connecticut with bear, moose, and bobcats--as well as a collie named Dreydl. We just published COOKING KNOW-HOW this year--and are eagerly awaiting HAM: AN OBSESSION WITH THE HINDQUARTER in March and REAL FOOD HAS CURVES: HOW TO GET OFF PROCESSED FOOD, LOSE WEIGHT, AND LOVE WHAT YOU EAT in May. And there's a goat book in pieces on my computer for 2011.
