About Margaret

Margaret M. Wittenberg, globally recognized authority and educator on natural and organic foods, has taught students of all ages about the wonders and delicious flavors that can be enjoyed with good food. As an author, her books provide a refreshing approach on exploring, choosing, and preparing natural foods, weaving together mouth-watering descriptions, cooking guidelines, time-saving suggestions, and just enough history, food science, and nutrition to whet the appetite while enjoying the process.
