Liana Krissoff is a cookbook author with six published cookbooks, owner of a publishing services business and contributor to EatingWell. She also takes on ghostwriting and recipe-testing and recipe-development projects.

Aside from a brief stint as a line cook in a small Italian restaurant in northern Virginia, Liana has been working in the publishing industry her entire adult life. She started out at Rizzoli International Publications as an editorial assistant, helping the cookbook editor and then the art book editor acquire and develop the lusciously illustrated books the house is known for.

After Rizzoli, she worked on adult trade books at HarperCollins and then took a job as a production editor at Routledge. In 2000 she took the plunge and started her own editing and project management company.

Her first two cookbooks, Hot Drinks for Cold Nights and Secrets of Slow Cooking, were published in 2005, and she's been writing about food ever since, publishing a trilogy of cookbooks that approached old-school techniques from a fresh perspective: Canning for a New Generation, Whole Grains for a New Generation and Vegetarian for a New Generation.

Her most recent book is Slow Cook Modern, featuring true eight-hour slow-cooker main dishes plus quick fresh sides and accompaniments. Her next book, an ode to home cooking and helping young cooks learn to cook well through micro-essays and approachable recipes, will be released in spring 2023.
