My name is Peggy Wolff. I write, I cook, I bake, I’m a coffee snob, drink a lot of Rioja, channel Truffaut and Nicolas Ray and now that I stopped collecting menus, I grow things in the backyard. I started this blog to coincide with the release of my first book, Fried Walleye and Cherry Pie: Midwestern Writers on Food, an anthology of essays from highly regarded writers. Although the stories are about food, they are never just about food, but about Midwestern life. American life.
