I’m a flavor maven, chef and food consultant living in Connecticut. I work the savory side as a cookbook author and recipe developer but am known for my expertise in bread baking and desserts. As a food writer, I travel the world visiting almond growers, bakers, flavor scientists, pastry chefs and all manner of farm and fishery.

Almonds are my passion. And the lens through which I view the complex world of small farms, agribusiness and the global food system.

My aim is to share some of my experiences in the hopes of inspiring others to be bold and curious in their food discoveries. Cooking at home with friends, seeking culinary adventures and researching almonds have given me a flavorful life.
