Dina Guillen is a marketing consultant and cookbook author. She is passionate about plank grilling--so much so, that she has written two cookbooks of this method of cooking.  Dina entered the world of cookbook writing following a carrer in journalism, marketing, and public relations. It all started with a phone call from her brother, who owned a grilling plank business. He asked Dina if she would develop recipes that he could package with his grilling planks.  Guillen has written three cookbooks including: Plank Grilling, The Plank Grilling Cookbook, and Cooking Club: Great Ideas & Delicious Recipes for Fabulous Get-Togethers.
