I cook. I eat. I write. I develop and test recipes. I play music. I ride bikes. But mostly I write books about the people, places, and food I love. I've been in the food publishing business as a writer, editor, and collaborator for more than 20 years. Before that, I cooked in restaurants throughout high school and college. Then I went to graduate school and got serious about writing. A little too serious. So I went back to food to lighten things up. Check out the details below.
