John Whalen III is the author of more than four cookbooks. Born and raised in both the culinary and also publishing industries, he founded Whalen Book Works in 2016 in order to publish a curated list of culinary and nonfiction titles.

"John Whalen’s recipes are uncomplicated and accessible–even to a
novice griller–while delivering complex flavors and unexpected
elegance. His sauces, starters, and sides offer surprising and
colorful combinations that really work. I find myself actually
wanting to fire up the coals, and that’s saying something. Who
knows? I might just earn my chops after all."
