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 many know me 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.

My position as the President of American Almond Products ensured a lifelong ambassadorship for the almond industry. Almonds are my passion. And the lens through which I view the complex world of small farms, agribusiness and the global food system.

Companies hire me to educate and inform those who are passionate about food – be they home cooks, professionals or members of a brand team. As a creative leader, I inspire others to be bold and curious in their food discoveries, utilizing sustainable cooking methods and of course #livingaflavorfullife
