Joyce Goldstein (photographed here with her grandson Adam), author of Mediterranean Fresh: A Compendium of One-Plate Salad Meals and Mix-and-Match Dressings, is a household name in most food-loving homes around the globe. Hers is a name that brings out big smiles from her loyal fans. She is respected and passionately loved by most all who have met her, heard her speak and learned from her. And even those who are guarded about publicly supporting a fellow food professional (how sad!), find a way of saying at least something good about Joyce. But luckily for the rest of us, Joyce is a class act, who knows who she is. And to enrich us beyond what she has already done through her food, she is now sharing with us, her families simple, old-fashioned way of keeping in touch, sharing, loving and living fully.
