Jane Lear

Jane Lear is a regular contributor to TakePart. She was on staff at Martha Stewart Living and (for almost 20 years) Gourmet, where she helped develop the concept of an annual produce issue—the first time a food magazine ever grappled with the politics of the plate—and headed up seven subsequent produce issues. She has also written about culinary techniques, has contributed to numerous cookbooks, and now blogs regularly at JaneLear.com. As our weekly food advice columnist, she's here to answer questions about the food landscape, from policy to no-fail cooking techniques. TakePart.com | Google+
