Judith and Evan Jones


Judith Jones  
Judith Jones, an editor at Alfred A. Knopf in New York, learned to cook in her aunt's Vermont kitchen. She is not only the preeminent cookbook editor in publishing but also edits such literary icons as John Updike, John Hersey, and Anne Tyler.

Her husband, the late Evan Jones, began cooking as a youngster in Minnesota and is the author of books of history that include American Food: The Gastronomic Story and The World of Cheese. They collaborated on The Book of Bread, published in 1982, and The L.L. Bean Book of New New England Cookery, published in 1987.

Mitra Modarressi, the illustrator of Knead It, Punch It, Bake It!, is the daughter of Anne Tyler.

A Note About the Dog

 Madoc dog Modarressi's charming line-drawings add warmth and humor to this edition of Knead It, Punch It, Bake It! Modarressi even used Judith Jones' beloved Welsh Corgi, Madoc, as the model for the ever-present dog in the book.
