about

You may not recognize my name, although chances are you’re familiar with my work. During the last two decades, I've written, edited or otherwise refined hundreds of recipes and lifestyle features
for print and online publications including The Washington Post, Real Simple, Martha Stewart Living, and Leite's Culinaria.

 

I bring to each assignment some measure of practical and aspirational. My perspective
has been shaped by the crazily talented editors, writers, photographers, art directors and consumer marketing teams with whom I've worked over the years. Drawing on all that, 
I attempt to accomplish each assignment with some measure
of originality and grace.

 

My work has been featured on NPR's Thanksgiving Morning Edition as well as The Splendid Table. It has also been included in The Best American Recipes and The Best Food Writing and I've repeatedly been a judge for The James Beard Cookbook Awards.

Perhaps most tellingly, the website I curate was referred to by The New York Times reporter Kim Severson as, "The only source I trust besides The Times."
