“People who love to eat are always the best people.”—Julia Child

I’m a freelance writer with a deep passion for food and history, and the way the two intersect. The dishes we turn to comfort, how we push ourselves to understand food and drink, and our shared passion for a fine meal is a reflection of our modern cultural experience, as well as our communal past.

The best evenings in my life, the smartest conversations and heartiest memories all center around a dining table. If I have shared a meal with you, I have shared my heart.

And since writing is the only way I know to express what’s in my heart, words become an essential food for my soul
