Title: Food Writer, Recipe Developer, and Botanist

Heather has always loved cooking. As a kid she devoured cookbooks, cooking magazines, and cooking shows like Great Chefs of the World and the Frugal Gourmet. Other than the home ec classes she took in middle school and high school, she has no formal culinary training but has nonetheless amassed decades of hands-on experience (including five years as a barista in college). Cooking is Heather's primary creative expression, and her favorite way of exploring the world.
