Main article: Jean Paré

Paré started as a caterer. In 1981, at the age of 54, she self-published her first cookbook, printing 15,000 copies of 150 Delicious Squares. The book was sold in specially designed racks at gas stations, grocery stores and at local fairs.[3] This first book started the Company's Coming company.
