Welcome to the online home of Cheryl and Bill Jamison

Authors of more than a dozen cookbooks and culinary adventure tales, Cheryl and Bill celebrate the wonderful world of food all around the globe. Join them in their books as they relish the home cooking of New Mexico, check out the street food of Singapore, Thailand, and Brazil, dine at the tables of the best French chef still unknown in America, cook sumptuous shrimp and grits for breakfast, grill a great green-chile cheeseburger, and barbecue a whole hog at Memphis in May.

The Jamisons have played a leading role in the recent revival of good, robust American cooking. Cheryl and Bill helped to stimulate the trend with American Home Cooking, A Real American Breakfast, and The Border Cookbook, all finalists and winners of prestigious awards from the James Beard Foundation and the International Association of Culinary Professionals. Often called "America's Outdoor Cooking Experts," they are among the country's foremost authorities on barbecue, grilling, and smoke cooking. Their top-selling cookbooks in the field include Beard Award-winners The Big Book of Outdoor Cooking & Entertaining and Smoke & Spice, as well as Good-Times, Good Grilling, and Born to Grill. Cheryl is Contributing Culinary Editor for New Mexico Magazine and writes a monthly column and regular blog called Tasting NM.
