Odessa Piper

Odessa founded L’Etoile restaurant in Madison Wisconsin in 1976, building networks to promote eating locally throughout the winter months. After transitioning ownership of L’Etoile in 2005, she became inspired by permaculture and expanded her range to Europe before moving to New England to cook and write about it. Currently Odessa mentors a seasonal work-study program in ecological foodways at Taliesin in Wisconsin.
