Our 10th Cookbook

ISBN 978-1-77050-297-0


Welcome to The Cooking Ladies’ Website.

We are happy wanderers whose goal is to guide you in your next travel and culinary adventure.

We have stood at the Arctic Circle, walked ghost towns in New Mexico, chilled our drinks with 10,000-year-old iceberg bits in Newfoundland and Labrador, walked on ancient lava beds in Hawaii, judged at the World Food Championships, and eaten our way around the Gulf of Mexico.

By sharing meals, stimulating conversation, and good wine with farmers, fishers, vintners, and chefs, we discover the bounty and beauty of their diverse corners of the world.

We tell our stories in our culinary-travelogue cookbooks, our regular column in RV Lifestyle Magazine, and freelance articles and blogs in publications across North America.

We’re always seeking out interesting people, fascinating places, and tantalizing food. We’d love to have you join us as we discover what’s around the next bend in the road.
