Elaine Johnson

Elaine Johnson, Associate Food Editor, Sunset Magazine 

In her 20-plus years at Sunset, Elaine Johnson has delved into everything from grilling great carne asada and making the ultimate s’mores to bringing back forgotten stone fruits and baking with local grains. She contributed to The Sunset Cookbook and The One-Block Feast, and is co-editing Sunset’s Outdoor Cookbook (2014). She also edits the new Market Fresh column and is spearheading Sunset’s new Grill 365 initiative. In between time at the magazine, Johnson has worked as a freelance writer, editor, and recipe developer for magazines and cookbooks, such as Safeway’s Every Season, Weber’s Charcoal Grilling, and Weber’s Way to Grill.

At home in Palo Alto she enjoys growing her own food and cooking with her husband and twin teenage boys.
