Guest Profile

Meadow Linn

Meadow Linn is a speaker, writer, and chef. A gourmet from birth, Meadow created her first dish when she was three years old "Tahini Balls". Impassioned by the tragedy of the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989, although only eleven years old, Meadow began writing a monthly environmental column for children in an Australian newspaper.

At Williams College, Meadow studied French and English literature and received a Masters Degree in French Cultural Studies from Columbia University. Following that, she became a French teacher for children ranging in age from 7-17.

Meadow is the daughter of Denise Linn, world-renowned healer and teacher. When she was 18 years old, Meadow, a self-taught chef and lover of all things edible, started catering her mother's retreats, which she's been doing ever since.
While cooking for these retreats during her summer vacations, Meadow saw the powerful connection between not just what we eat, but also how we eat and how we feel. Eating well brings balance and harmony to mind, body, and spirit.

Meadow believes good food should be a celebration of life. Having watched countless people transform their lives simply by making mealtimes fun and delicious, Meadow gave up her eight-year career as a French teacher and devoted herself to helping others savor their lives more fully.

Meadow speaks and writes on a variety of topics and believes that the path to health and happiness need not be arduous. You can literally transform your life one bite at a time.

Meadow writes a blog called, Savor the Day, which is about life, love, and good food. She's the co-author of Quest: A Guide for Creating Your Own Vision Quest and The Mystic Cookbook: The Secret Alchemy of Food. Her articles appear frequently in The Seattle Chinese Times and she's a contributing writer to In Spirit magazine. Meadow finds great relaxation and solace behind the lens of her camera. Her photographs have been recognized both at the state and national level.

She lives in California with her dog, cats, and chickens. Her favorite mornings start with a steaming cup of tea and produce plucked from her garden or poached eggs from her hens.
