Jean B. MacLeod
Born and raised in Liverpool, England, Jean B. MacLeod has lived in Canada and various parts of the United States, and has resided in Southern California since 1957. She left school at age fourteen, worked mostly in the corporate world, and earned a BA in liberal arts, magna cum laude, while in her late fifties. A longtime collector of practical tips for the home and garden, she enjoys exploring food and horticultural trends related to sustainable living and is a member of the Culinary Historians of Southern California and Slow Food USA. As an eighty-five-year-old who grew up during food rationing that accompanied and followed WWII, she knows a thing or two about frugality and the preciousness of food. An avid reader with a soft spot for British mysteries, she is a huge fan of farmers’ markets, ethnic markets, public libraries, public transportation, the theater, and PBS. She is close to her two daughters and enjoys life in the Los Angeles area.
