Comments  Summary  Contents  Author Notes

Madeleine Kamman, a mother and grandmother, was born in Paris and educated in modern languages in the French school system and at the Sorbonne in the forties and fifties. As a young woman, she spent a great deal of time working at her aunt's Michelin-starred restaurant in the Loire Valley. In 1960, she married an American and almost immediately began teaching her native cuisine in the United States. Chez la Mere Madeleine, the four-star restaurant she ran in Boston with the help of her students until 1979, was considered one of the finest in the country. For the last forty years, Madeleine has taught culinary arts all over the United States, as well as in France and many other countries. In the mid-1980s, she hosted the PBS cooking show "Madeleine Cooks." In 1989, she founded and directed the School for American Chefs, where she taught a graduate program for professionals at Beringer Wine Estates in St. Helena, Napa Valley, through 2000. In 1997, her New Making of a Cook, a fully revised edition of her popular Making of a Cook, received the Cookbook of the Year Award from the James Beard Foundation. Now retired in Vermont, Madeleine continues to be active in the culinary arts, mentoring students and young chefs who come to her for advice. She is, in her spare time, a student in German literature at the University of Vermont
