J. Scott Wilson is, as the title implies, a former short order cook. He has written for more than a decade on topics from home cooking to gourmet products and food trends.

A transplanted Texan now living in North Carolina, his strongest suits are grilling and breakfast creations, although just about anything may come out of his test kitchen on any given day.
