Rosalind Creasy

Rosalind  Creasy Rosalind Creasy is a garden and food writer, photographer, and landscape designer with a passion for beautiful vegetables and ecologically sensitive gardening.

She began her career in horticulture in the 1970s as a landscape designer and restaurant consultant. By 1982 she had published her first book, The Complete Book of Edible Landscaping, which won the Garden Writers Association’s Quill and Trowel award, was chosen as a Book of the Month selection, and hailed by The Wall Street Journal as the best garden book of 1982. Considered a classic, it coined the term “Edible Landscaping,” now a part of the American vocabulary.

Her Cooking From the Garden, published in 1988, won the Award of Excellence from the Garden Writers of America, and introduced the American public to a vast new palette of vegetables including the then unknown: heirloom tomatoes and melons, mesclun salad greens, and the blue potatoes and corn we now take for granted.

Today, Rosalind continues to share her knowledge of gardening and cooking by writing, lecturing nationwide, appearing on television and radio shows, and working as a consultant to restaurants, growers, and seed companies. Besides her books, she has been published in countless national magazines, written a regular column for the food page of the Los Angeles Times, a garden feature for Garden Design magazine, a regular column for Gardening How-To magazine, and for years was a contributing editor for Country Living Gardener magazine. Her photographs appear frequently in numerous magazines, calendars, and books.

Rosalind’s recent publications include the ten book Edible Gardening series filled with beautiful photographs and recipes. The series was awarded a Quill and Trowel Award from the Garden Writers in 2001. Her latest project is updating The Complete Book of Edible Landscaping.

Her new book Rosalind Creasy’s Recipes From The Garden: 200 Exciting Recipes from the Author of the Complete Book of Edible Landscaping has just been published. She is currently working on a completely revised version of her book Edible Landscaping, which will be released in Winter, 2010.

Rosalind resides in Northern California.
