Canal House is a culinary, photography, and design studio operated by Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton. They are home cooks who write about home cooking for other home cooks. Together, they collaborate on Canal House Cooking, a series of seasonal cookbooks for which they do all the writing, recipes, photography, design, and production. They were the recipients of the 2013 James Beard Foundation award in the General Cooking category for their cookbook, Canal House Cooks Every Day (Andrews McMeel, 2012), and were nominees for their Bon Appétit video series, "The Seasonal Cooks," as well as 2013 IACP nominees for Photography and Food Styling. Their next book, Cook Something (Little, Brown), will be available fall 2017.
