Seasonal, dietary restriction friendly. Rustic, creative comfort food with a down to earth feel. I serve many gluten-free and vegan clients.
I am a completely self-taught chef. In 2008, I co-founded Big Girls Small Kitchen, a food website for twenty-something cooks looking for user-friendly, affordable ways to navigate their kitchens. My first cookbook, In the Small Kitchen, was published by Harper Collins in May 2011, with a foreword by Ina Garten, whose Food Network Show, The Barefoot Contessa, I have appeared on twice.
I am a regular contributor to The Huffington Post, Serious Eats, The Daily Meal, LearnVest and Shape Magazine. My recipes and cookbook have also been featured in The New York Daily News, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, and Glamour Magazine, and online by Time Out New York, Saveur, Brides Magazine, Paper Mag, and Design*Sponge.
I am a contestant on the upcoming BBC America show Chef Race.
