Lucinda Scala Quinn’s love for cooking started early, in the kitchen and around the table of her childhood home. This passion blossomed into a career as a chef, cooking teacher, caterer, author, food editor and television host. The mother of three boys, she is a firm believer that food, security, and love are entwined in the meals we cook and serve to our family and friends. Moreover, Lucinda believes that there are few things more important—or pleasurable-than teaching your loved ones how to cook, then watching as they grow into fine cooks of their own and pass those skills on to others.
Lucinda has authored four books, Lucinda’s Rustic Italian Kitchen, Lucinda’s Authentic Jamaican Kitchen, Mad Hungry: Feeding Men & Boys, and Mad Hungry Cravings. All of Lucinda’s books and projects feature the food she cooks and loves, with recipes that are big on flavor and low on fuss.
