About Me


To figure out where I want to live when I finally break up with New York.


- The perfect day for me would be a morning run followed by a cup of fresh mint tea. Then reading for an hour while sunbathing. Then a jump in the pool then a meeting with friends/collaborators about a project we are developing. This might last a while but it's perfect. It's work that we love. A shower, a steam. Dinner al fresco. Shrimp, tomatoes, corn, cilantro, fresh berries for dessert. Then maybe an episode of The Wire, and it would be as if I'd somehow never seen it.

- I started my weekly home chef service fresh outta college. thecuilnistas.com

- I lived in Madagascar to write a cookbook when I was 20. Wish I were that brave now.

- I've written other cookbooks and I am a ceramicist.

- I love surfing, running, hiking, skiing and other outdoor sports.
