Kitchen Wisdom Publishing

a micro-publisher

Kitchen Wisdom was formed by Herb Weiner in 1986 as a cookbook publisher. We were excited by the combination of the Mac, the LaserWriter, and PostScript as a desktop publishing solution. We decided to re-typeset Beyond Tacos: Mexican Cuisine, originally published in 1984, on the Mac.

host to the marilyn is wrong site

We are proud to host the Marilyn is Wrong web site, where we provide a forum for discussion of PARADE MAGAZINE's Ask Marilyn ® column.

a software developer and consultant

We quickly discovered that the existing software for the Mac and LaserWriter were far from adequate. Our focus shifted from publishing to software development. We found that solutions we developed for our own use had value to others. Perhaps you'd enjoy these PostScript Quick Tips.

If you publish recipes, we recommend our Recipe Design Wizard™ Plug-in for Adobe® InDesign®.

In addition to PostScript and PDF, we provide consulting and do custom software development for the Mac, Unix, Solaris, and Linux.

human factors and user interface design

Herb has been involved in human factors since 1975 (before it became popular). Human Factors Lessons from the Design of a Real Product describes Herb's experiences as a designer of the Tektronix 4991S1 Graphic Input Workstation, which pioneered the user interface concepts later adopted by Adobe Illustrator.

an internet resource

wiskit (kitchen wisdom) has been connected to the Internet since June of 1991. Our initial connection was a shared connection provided by RAINet, as an experiment in Metropolitan Wide Area Networking. Kitchen Wisdom now has dedicated Internet service, and can offer assistance to small businesses that would like to connect to the Internet or need help setting up virtual private networks (VPNs).
