Wini Moranville has written about food and wine for leading magazines and websites for more than 20 years—hundreds of those being for Better Homes & Gardens publications, including the iconic New Cook Book. She holds a bachelor's degree in French and English from the University of Iowa; she also studied French at the University Laval in Quebec, Canada. Moranville later studied creative writing at Iowa State University, where she received a master's degree in English and was the recipient of the Pearl Hogrefe Fellowship in Creative Writing.

While she's covered just about every food topic imaginable—from bargain wines to fancy desserts—she's most passionate about the easy-yet-inspired everyday French cuisine she's discovered throughout more than twenty summers living and cooking in France. Moranville was a finalist for the Goodreads Choice Award, Best Food & Cookbooks 2019, for The Little Women Cookbook. Her book, Everyday French Cooking: Modern French Cuisine Made Simple, will be published by Harvard Common Press in 2022. Back home in the Great Midwest, her local Aldi supermarket is her happy place.
