A SELF-PROCLAIMED KI TCHEN GYPS Y (also the title of her newest cookbook), Joanne Weir has traveled and eaten around the world but resides in the Bay Area, where she shares her culinary notes in her cooking classes, award-winning cookbooks and television shows. And just in case that doesn’t keep her busy enough, Weir also owns the award-winning Mexican restaurant Copita Tequileria y Comida in Sausalito
with partner Larry Mindel. We caught up with Weir at home in Pacific Heights between travels (she
was packing for Marrakech the last time we checked), where she was, well, cooking, of course.
