Bronwyn grew up in a family professionally involved in the world of food. Her father, Evan Jones, was a writer who specialized in history and food. Her stepmother, Judith B. Jones, an editor at Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., became famous editing Julia Child’s first cookbook, Mastering The Art of French Cooking.
Cooking was one of the first things that she learned to do. It was a natural thing to do and because there were so many good cooks coming and going in their home, she had ample opportunity to watch great chefs prepare recipes. Julia Child, James Beard, Lidia Bastianich, Alice Waters, Edna Lewis, Marion Cunningham and Madhur Jaffrey are only a few of the cookbook authors who have been her food mentors.
Sterling College recently benefited from a donation from Bronwyn, an amazing collection of books that made up the personal library of Evan and Judith Jones and is now a part of the Sterling College Food Library Collection.
