What a joy to work with Chris Peterson. He is a fantastic, collaborative writer who knows how to creatively and intelligently express exactly what you’re trying to say. Anyone would be lucky to work with him.

— Wendy Goldberg, co-author of The Blue Bloods Cookbook: 120 Recipes That Will Bring Your Family to the Table


I’ve worked with Chris Peterson on cookbooks that have required extensive testing, cookbooks that called for hand-holding, cookbooks that have needed detailed nutritional information, and cookbooks that had to be turned around on a dime. In each case, Chris has done a terrific job, and earned kudos from the principal, the copyeditor, and the managing editor here as well.  He’s helped first-time authors as well as seasoned bestsellers on our list. He’s able to tap an effortless but broad culinary knowledge to enhance the books. Best of all, Chris’ drama-free style and relentless deadline awareness go both noticed and appreciated during every project he works on with us. He always hits his marks, and is always a pleasure to deal with.

Working with Chris Peterson was a dream. We had a number of projects together—with high-profile celebrity authors—and I always knew that if they were in his hands, they would be well-written, organized, and professional. He made my job as an editor much easier, which is an invaluable skill. Best of all, he’s delightful to work with and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an experienced, talented writer.
