Bruce Weinsteinâ€™s background lies in advertising. While
working as a creative director in some of New Yorkâ€™s top
agencies, he maintained connections in the food industry,
connections that took root when he attended Johnson and
Wales. While directing projects for Tide and Doubleday, he
freelanced to create brands like Lea and Perrins Barbecue
Sauce and cocktails for Disney Worldâ€™s Pleasure Island.
This culinary sidelight led to his first book, Frozen
Drinks With or Without the Buzz (Clarkson Potter, 1997).
Mark Scarbrough started his professional life as an
academic. He did his graduate work at the University of
Wisconsinâ€”he was the departmentâ€™s lecturer for its
introductory courses. In 1992, he was hired by Saint
Edwardâ€™s University in Austin but also took a small job
writing food content for an internet start-up: AOL. In
1997, he moved to New York to pursue writing full-time.
Bruce and Markâ€™s first cookbook, The Ultimate Ice Cream
Book (Morrow, 1999), proved a smash hit and spurred on
the "ultimate" series that now includes The Ultimate Party
Drink Book (2000), The Ultimate Candy Book (2000), The
Ultimate Shrimp Book (2002), The Ultimate Brownie Book
(2002), The Ultimate Potato Book (2003), The Ultimate
Muffin Book (2004), The Ultimate Chocolate Cookie Book
(2004), The Ultimate Frozen Dessert Book" (2005), and The
Ultimate Peanut Butter Book (2005). In 2007, Bruce and Mark
will publish the compendium hardcover that will ground
their best-selling seriesâ€”"The Ultimate Cook Book."
In February, 2004, their first hardcover, Cooking for Two,
hit store shelves. They have also written Grilling
Essentials for the Cooking Club of America and have ghost-
written The Stonewall Kitchen Cookbook and developed the
recipes for Dr. Philâ€™s Weight Loss Solution Cookbook.
Bruce and Mark are Contributing Editors to both Weight
Watchers Magazine (in which they write the "Ultimate
Cooking" column) and to Eating Well Magazine (in which they
write the "Cooking for Two" column). They also write the
Table for Two column in Todayâ€™s Health and Wellness. They
write regularly for Cooking Light, Gourmet, Cooking
Pleasures, and The Wine Spectator. Bruce has written for

Entertaining and Bon Appetit. Mark writes the "Report from
