James Beard Award
Joanne Weir is a James Beard Award-winning cookbook author, international cooking teacher and renowned chef. Joanne’s passion for home cooking was stoked by a legacy of life in the kitchen.
A fourth generation professional chef, Joanne’s great-grandmother operated a restaurant in Boston at the turn of the century called Pilgrim’s Pantry.
This enthusiasm for food was passed down to her grandfather and her mother, a professional chef and caterer who worked with the legendary cookbook author, Charlotte Turgeon. Joanne continues that same tradition.
After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Massachusetts, Joanne went on to teach Fine Arts in Boston. She then found her way back to the kitchen.
