Crescent Dragonwagon is the much-published, award-winning author of over 40 books in four different genres: novels, cookbooks/culinary memoir, children's books, and poetry. She's won awards in three of these categories, including a Coretta Scott King Award for Half a Moon & One Whole Star, a James Beard Award for Passionate Vegetarian, and a New York Times Notable for The Year It Rained. She's also a funny, on-the-mark and off-the-wall writing teacher and workshop leader. Her interactive, exuberant teaching style has been called "Inspiring and original" by the late Julia Child, and full of "good grace, honesty, quick wit, wisdom and insight... powerful," by the Prix de Rome-winning poet Miller Williams.

Here she riffs on one of her workshops, Deep Feast: Writing the World Through Food. She says to tell you, though that the garlic was harvested not "last winter" but "last summer"!
