Katherine Evelyn Heyhoe (born April 9, 1955) is an American editor and food writer. She is the author of numerous gourmet cookbooks.


Heyhoe has been a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) since 1994, when she co-founded the electronic Gourmet Guide, one of the first websites dedicated to food and cooking.[citation needed] In 1995 she developed food sites for America Online and in 1996 launched The Global Gourmet website which merged into the Global Gourmet in 1998.[1] She is currently[when?] Executive Editor of The Global Gourmet and writes a monthly food column about culinary topics.[2]

Heyhoe coined the term cookprint. Cookprint is a set of resources used to cook the food, including the ingredients, the energy and water used to prepare the food, and also the waste produced in the process.[3]

Personal life[edit]

Heyhoe is married to Thomas Way,[2][4] who is also her business partner. Currently the couple lives in the Hill Country near Austin, Texas.[5]
