The author, editor, columnist and teacher will take up her post as the Joseph Hoare Gastronomic Writer in Residence for the 2014-2015 school year, the school has announced.

Students will be able to make use of Waverman's experience as the author of eight award-winning cookbooks, including "A Matter of Taste," which she co-wrote with wine writer James Chatto.

In 2005, she was presented with the Gold Award in Food Media/Journalism by the Ontario Hostelry Association for her efforts in mentoring young talent and for educating the public about cooking and world cuisines through her writing and teaching. In 2013, she was honoured with The Women Culinary Network's 2013 Woman of the Year award.

Previous gastronomic writers in residence include coach, editor and writer Diane Jacob, columnist and author James Chatto, writer and author Corby Kummer, Australian academic and author Michael Symons, journalist and author Ian Brown, author and blogger Clotilde Dusoulier and James Oseland, editor-in-chief of Saveur.
