Lori Galvin (website LoriGalvin.com) knows cookbooks. For over a decade, she helped lead a team that produced dozens of landmark cookbooks (70+) for the multimedia publisher America's Test Kitchen. Just a few of her titles include the companions to the most-watched cooking shows on public television, America's Test Kitchen and Cook's Country from America's Test Kitchen, as well as the New York Times bestseller The Cook's Illustrated Cookbook, The Complete Cooking for Two Cookbook, Cook's Country Eats Local, and Kitchen Hacks. Prior to ATK, Lori edited cookbooks for Houghton Mifflin, cooked in restaurant kitchens, and ran a bed-and-breakfast in Maine. She earned her B.A. in English literature from Northeastern University and completed the chef certificate program at Boston University.
Lori seeks cookbook authors with a strong point of view, a solid grounding in their field, and a talent for motivating cooks of all stripes to get into the kitchen. She is also on the lookout for compelling narratives about food and drink, whether memoir or cultural commentary, serious or steeped in humor. Lifestyle topics, including personal development and motivational self-help, are also of interest.
