Well-crafted stories and expert culinary insights

Culinary Consulting

A wearer of many hats, I focus on consumer-directed content on the topics of food, beverage and travel. This covers options from customized original recipes, to flavor profiles and story-telling.


It makes for a full shelf, the books I’ve worked on through my career, with nine solo cookbooks and a couple dozen more that I’ve co-authored, contributed to or edited.

Teaching & Speaking

It is pure pleasure to pass along my culinary knowledge and experience, helping others feel more inspired and confident in the kitchen.
