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, proofed or otherwise refined hundreds of recipes and lifestyle features for print and online publications includingThe Washington Post, Real Simple, Martha Stewart Living, and Leite's Culinaria.

 

My perspective has been informed by the crazily talented editors, writers, photographers, art directors and consumer marketing teams with whom I've worked. Drawing on all that, I've attempted to accomplish each assignment with some measure of originality, practicality, wit, and grace, although you can be the judge of that, as others have in recent years...

 

The New York Times reporter Kim Severson has noted the reliability of recipes I've edited, calling
the website I curate, "The only source I trust besides The New York Times."

 

The Splendid Table featured my ability to
share approachable how-tos and answer
listener queries.

 

NPR's Morning Edition asked to share an article
I wrote for The Washington Post on
the Thanksgiving episdode.

The Best American Recipes
 series repeatedly
featured my creations.

 

The Best Food Writing series selected an essay of mine.

 

The James Beard Cookbook Awards has
repeatedly enlisted me as a judge.


Prominent book publishers accepted book proposals I wrote for chefs within days.
