Megan Scott is the newest member of the Joy clan. She has worked for the cookbook since 2010, when she and John met and immediately bonded over a shared love of blue cheese and Cheddar biscuits. Megan’s culinary education began in the South, where she learned to cook from a long line of matriarchs. She grew up in a farming family, shucking corn and snapping green beans for as far back as she can remember. She has been a cheesemaker’s apprentice, a baker, and an assistant pastry chef, and in addition to her work for Joy she is the culinary director of a creative culinary agency in Portland, Oregon.
