Some people like to eat out. I'd rather follow the chef into the kitchen and find out what's cooking.

Growing up all along the Eastern seaboard and beyond, from New England to the West Indies, gave me a true appreciation for locally grown food and handed-down recipes. With a passion for writing, cooking, and visual arts, I bring it all together to explore specific ingredients, techniques, and flavors, as well as how food impacts our world in a variety of ways.
