Summary: Meadow Linn, the co-author of Quest and The Mystic Cookbook, received her bachelor’s degree from Williams College and her master’s degree in French Cultural Studies from Columbia University. She has a popular column in a Seattle newspaper and writes a blog (www.savortheday.com) that’s filled with delicious recipes and stories about her journey to finding love. The daughter of the world-renowned healer, lecturer, and writer Denise Linn, Meadow has been cooking for the guests at her mother’s retreats for the past 18 years. While cooking professionally, she began to see the powerful connection between the way we feel and not just what we eat, but also how we eat, which propelled her on a path to share this knowledge. Additionally, Meadow taught elementary school and high school for eight years and spent two years living in Europe studying French theater and literature while attaining her master’s degree. She was also the recipient of a prestigious National Endowment for the Humanities grant to study French theater in Avignon. Meadow’s work today is a blending of her academic background with her spiritual upbringing. Meadow lives on the Central Coast of California where she loves tending her vegetable garden and cuddling with her dog, cats, and chickens.
