Jill Silverman Hough is a cookbook author, food and wine writer, recipe developer, and culinary instructor whose forte is making food and cooking simple yet special. Thirsty Girls love to drink … AND eat.
“A recipe doesn’t have to be complicated to be indulgent,” she says. “Sprinkle a roast chicken with lavender, substitute dried cherries for raisins in a batch of oatmeal cookies, serve grilled salmon on a bed of arugula—all these things take almost no effort, yet they’ll make your otherwise ordinary dishes taste and feel like fancy food.”
As this week’s TTG Jill makes food and wine approachable to everyone, isn’t this what being a Thirsty Girl is all about?
Her work has appeared in Bon Appétit, Cooking Light, Fine Cooking, Clean Eating, Napa Sonoma, and other magazines. And her cookbook, 100 Perfect Pairings: Small Plates to Enjoy with Wines You Love, premiered in April 2010, with 100 Perfect Pairings: Main Dishes to Enjoy with Wines You Love out in April 2011. A regular and popular presenter at cooking schools throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, Jill lives in Napa, California.
Even better, Jill just published a book for any foodie, wine lover, or beautiful-food-picture-lover entitled, “100 Perfect Pairings: Main Dishes to Enjoy with Wines You Love.” Cheers to that.
