About me

Gender Female
Location New York, United States
Introduction Cooking (and eating) is a passion. I love to discover new techniques and dishes. I love tackling a new recipe. I love cooking for others. I have a deep interest all things food: the chemistry and process of cooking, the art of presentation, and the overall aesthetics of a meal. What started as a passion for cooking, therefore, has also blossomed into a deep interest in exploring the visual art of food via food photography (after all, we eat with our eyes first). Over the years I've become more and more interested in knowing what goes into my food and where it comes from, and increasingly suspicious of packaged or overly processed foods. I'm an avid farmer's market shopper and love stumbling upon seasonal ingredients and then figuring out what to do with them. I hoard cookbooks and food magazines. I have a million recipes I love and even more I want to try. I appreciate uncomplicated, full-flavored, healthy food. I have a sweet tooth and a passion for baking that contradicts my healthy bent, but I do at least use fresh, organic, high-quality ingredients. I'm sharing my favorite recipes, as well as any tips and new things I learn. I hope this helps you to discover some things too!
