About Cindy Burke

Cindy Burke is a former chef and food writer who lives in Seattle. After receiving a B.A. in Marketing from the University of Washington, she began to develop a healthy skepticism about how food is marketed to consumers. As the author of To Buy or Not to Buy Organic and recipe writer for The Trans-Fat Solution, she has educated her readers about how to make healthier choices when they shop for food. In her own kitchen, she tries to cook food that will appeal to her daughter, Allison, age six, who only likes food that is sweet or slathered with melted cheese, and her spouse, Pat, forty-something, who really does try to eat five-to-seven servings of fruits and vegetables a day.
