Patricia E. Byers, Artist, Photographer, Writer, Cook
Patricia Elizabeth Last Byers grew up in Larchmont, New York, lived in NYC after graduating from Rhode Island School of Design, then moved to California for a few years before returning to the East. In her heart, she didn't want to be far from New York, with its great museums and exciting activity. She has photographed and written about her travels in Europe, especially, Rome, Ireland and Spain. Her Viennese mother and Polish grandmother showed her the ropes to their way of cooking as she was growing up. She continues to cook enthusiastically, inventing, jotting down recipe steps, and photographing as she goes. She's put her skills together to create this book, to share her recipes, and open a discussion about weight maintenance. Patricia lives in Connecticut with her longtime partner, Alfred Moenter.
Patricia Byers is an artist, photographer, writer, cook and author of Enduring Weight Maintenance, vegetarian cookbook.
