About the Author
EVA KATZLER became aware that kids had forgotten-or had never known-the simple joys of getting a little messy with their hands when she worked in a summer camp. She came up with Florentine and Pig as a way of encouraging children (and their grownups) to rediscover the happiness that comes of cooking, eating, and making things together.JESS MIKHAIL's designs are created on her colorful sofa in her studio, which is located in an old custard factory in Birmingham. www.jess.mikhail.com
