Meg Houston Maker is a nonfiction essayist currently writing a memoir of home. She’s also an experienced cook and gardener, passionate about growing, preparing, and sharing beautiful food. Her interest in local, sustainable, and organic agriculture gives her a particular appreciation of terroir, the expression of place through food.
