About the Author

Eugene Walter (1921-98), a native of Mobile, Alabama, USA and author of the classic American Cooking: Southern Style, was a pioneering food writer and editor who enjoyed long sojourns in New York, Rome, and Paris when he wasn't at home in the South. A translator, screenwriter, novelist, puppeteer, artist, costume designer, actor, and more, Walter was a man of arts, letters, and food. The Happy Table of Eugene Walter, a cookbook that Walter was working on in the final years of his life, is the first new book by Walter to appear in more than a decade.

Donald Goodman was born in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA. He and his wife currently live in the Washington, D.C., area, where he manages the Eugene Walter estate.
