Gwen Ashley Walters
Born to journalist parents, it was only a matter of time before Gwen, a professionally trained chef and Certified Culinary Professional settled into a rewarding food writing career.
An honors graduate of the Scottsdale Culinary Institute, she honed her cooking skills in commercial kitchens such as the renowned Boulders Resort in Carefree before trading her chef’s knife for a pen. She is the author of three award-winning cookbooks featuring renowned U.S. resorts. She has taught cooking classes across the country and her recipes have been featured in various national newspapers and magazines.
Since 2006, she has written feature stories for Edible Phoenix, two of which are featured in Edible: A Celebration of Local Foods, by Edible Communities, released in May of 2010.
For fun, Gwen regularly dishes about food and travel on her blog, Pen & Fork.
