FarmPlate is a revolutionary online community that connects farmers, fishermen, foragers, food artisans, restaurants, markets, distributors and foodies everywhere, with a searchable directory of 40,000+ business listings across the country, networking tools and reviews. Werner attended at least a dozen schools in half a dozen countries as a youth. While living in Greece, Italy, France, England and the Caribbean, she was exposed to traditional methods of cultivating foods and the slow, simple rituals of preparing and enjoying regional and seasonal foods. These early experiences led to her love of cooking and to a career editing cookbooks. She has contributed to more than two dozen books, including the Joy of Cooking (1997).
