Do you love to cook? Are you looking for some flavorful recipes to try out? Then, you can put an end to your quest. My name is Joy Bateman, and I am the author and illustrator of The Art of Dining® books. Through my books, I showcase my tremendous love for art and passion for good food.
I love to explore the South’s pre-eminent restaurants. Since 2005, I have been capturing the best recipes in my cookbooks from the eminent Southern cities like Memphis, New Orleans, Nashville, Knoxville, and Amelia Island.
I founded Joy's Art of Dining to share my eight exclusive dining books with my beloved food lovers. The recipes will fascinate you as beautiful paintings accompany them. Each book of mine has original artwork instead of just photos and recipes.
