Author Dorie Greenspan on Pastries, Writing, and Women in the Industry

Dorie Greenspan has had quite the career. The six-time James Beard and IACP award winner has worked with some of the biggest names in food -- Daniel Boulud, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, pastry chef Pierre Herme, and Julia Child, to name a few. While she's widely explored the world of fine French food, her most recent title, Baking Chez Moi: Recipes From My Paris Home to Your Home Anywhere, is all about simple French baked goods anyone (including you) can make at home.

In part one of our two-part Q&A, Greenspan discusses her love of all things French, pastries, how she got her start in writing about food, and women in the culinary industry.
