Gwen McKee


Gwen McKeeAs the co-founder (with her husband, Barney) and the editor-in-chief of Quail Ridge Press, Gwen McKee has dedicated the past two decades to preserving America's food heritage. Gwen has accomplished much of this task by creating the 50-volume Best of the Best State Cookbook Series that includes over 20,000 classic recipes.

With her first book, Best of the Best from Mississippi Cookbook, published in 1982, Gwen began her quest to preserve the best recipes of America. Now, 33 years later, Gwen is still cooking and publishing.

Gwen McKee is the author The Little Gumbo Book and The Little New Orleans Cookbook, the latter of which has been translated into French. These two gift cookbooks were a natural progression, as Gwen was born and reared in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She was educated at Louisiana State University where her major studies and interests were journalism, English, Delta Gamma and Barney.
