TITLE: Culinary Director
AT FOOD & WINE SINCE: 2010
BORN AND RAISED: Stockton, CA
WHAT I DO AT FOOD & WINE: As the Culinary Director at FOOD & WINE, I test and develop hundreds of recipes a year for the magazine, foodandwine.com and other digital projects, and cookbooks. I also teach wonderfully oddball kitchen hacks—peeling hard-boiled eggs with a spoon, making perfect cake layers using dental floss—as the host of the video series, Mad Genius Tips.
I joined FOOD & WINE in 2010 as an Assistant Event Coordinator, helping produce the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen. Before joining FOOD & WINE, I graduated from the French Culinary Institute and worked under chef Alain Allegretti in New York City.
I appear regularly on NBC’s Today Show and have appeared on The Meredith Vieira Show, FOX 5’s Good Day NY and VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live, among others.
