About the Author

Sharon O'Connor was the first person ever to pair a cookbook with music. What seems like a simple idea food and music are a natural combination is actually the culmination of years of life experience. As O'Connor puts it, Menus and Music has packaged up my life.

After graduating from the University of California at Berkeley with degrees in music and sociology, O'Connor trained at the renowned Amsterdam Conservatory of Music. She began her career as a performer with the San Francisco Ballet and Opera and has worked with famed performers such as Frank Sinatra, Van Morrison, Tony Bennett and Linda Ronstadt. She has also recorded with the American Conservatory Theater, Aretha Franklin, John Williams, and for numerous Hollywood film scores. She continued her musical career as the founder and cellist of the San Francisco String Quartet.

A lifelong amateur chef, O'Connor began looking for a way to combine her loves for music, food, travel, and writing. Twelve years ago, while driving across the San Francisco Bay Bridge after a performance with her string quartet, she came up with the idea for Menus and Music.

Now, fourteen volumes later, O'Connor travels the world to research each cookbook and is an expert in adapting recipes from professional chefs for the home cook. Equal time is devoted to meeting with other musicians, mixing, arranging, editing, and performing the musical selections on the compact discs.

Sharon O'Connor makes her home in the San Francisco Bay Area with her two daughters and husband. Her family enthusiastically helps in the research, travel, and tasting for her series. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Words in appreciation of culinary arts and the arts!!!

This is a very interesting cookbook which enables the reader to cook delicious recipes, and listen to great composers at the same time. The pictures of artwork from various American museums are breathtaking and cause you to want to plan a trip for art appreciation. The recipes in the cookbook are delicious, and a form of art themselves when served. The accompanying music is soothing, light in spirit, and causes recipients of the delicious culinary art to be at peace while enjoying the delectables. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in art and music appreciation, and who enjoys the art of fine eating and food preparation. Also recommended: "Afternoon Tea Serenade" and "Picnics". Also, a fine book which would go along nicely with these books is "A Trilogy of Poetry, Prose and Thoughts for the Mind, Body and Soul."

I did not receive the music as advertised... Super disappointed and will return my purchase. I actually ordered 5 of these collections and none of them came with the music.
