Brigit Binns has authored or co-authored twenty-five cookbooks, many of them for Williams-Sonoma. She’s also helped many of this country’s most respected chefs—like New York’s Michael Psilakis (How to Roast a Lamb, Little Brown, 2009) and Los Angeles’ Joachim Splichal (Patina: Spuds, Truffles, and Wild Gnocchi, Collins, 1995)—turn their cookbook dreams into reality.
The Cook & The Butcher, her eleventh book for Williams-Sonoma, has won wide praise. Her book collaboration with the “rock-star” butcher Ryan Farr—San Francisco’s “King of Meats,”—Whole Beast Butchery (Chronicle, 2011) was nominated for a 2012 IACP award.
Her husband, actor Casey Biggs, has gained fame as the “Paso Wine Man,” via a viral video spot that was awarded the Wine Spectator Video of the Year, and won several Addys.
