I'm an avid cook and food lover who has worked in the food media for more than 20 years. I grew up mostly in North Carolina but also lived in South Louisiana, where my mom is from, so I'm a lover of Southern, Cajun, and Creole food. I moved to my current home of NYC for journalism school in my early 20s, attracted in large part by all the amazing food here—Chinese, Korean, Ethiopian, Puerto Rican, Indian, and so many more cuisines.
