Lynne Curry grew up in New England, tasted and rejected a fashion journalism career in New York City, and moved to the Pacific Northwest “for the summer."
Over 20 years later, she's lived and cooked in a rustic cabin, on a tall ship, at high altitude and for four-star restaurants in Washington and Oregon. Feeding her family of four in her own renovated kitchen has been the hardest of them all.
A former vegetarian, Lynne spent a year eating a lot of grassfed beef to write her first cookbook, Pure Beef: An Essential Guide to Artisan Meat with Recipes for Every Cut (Running Press), published on May 15, 2012. Part narrative and user-friendly instructional manual with 140 recipes, it promotes a mindful and joyful way of eating meat.
Lynne writes and develops recipes, cooks and teaches from her home in Joseph, Oregon. Find more of her writing and her Rural Eating blog at lynnecurry.com.
