She is the author or co-author of sixteen books, many of which have been translated into more than a dozen languages; her most recent book, "Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity, and Courage in a World Gone Mad" was published in 2007.

The James Beard Foundation celebrates restaurants that showcase culinary leadership and provides training and resources for chefs and restaurateurs to use their voices for positive food system change. Open for Good is the James Beard Foundation’s campaign to help independent restaurants survive this crisis, rebuild better, and thrive for the long term. Open for Good programs provide critical resources to help independent restaurants build the capacity to come back stronger, more equitable, more sustainable, and more resilient.
