Hi! I’m Rémy Robert. Despite what phonics suggest, it rhymes with Amy Snowbear. In France, Rémy is strictly a boys’ name, but I’m not from France, and I’m not a boy.
A native New Orleanian, I’m a recent Brown graduate with a rather versatile degree in Ethics & Political Philosophy. During my time there, I wrote food columns for two campus publications, Post- and BlogDailyHerald. Now I live in Brooklyn, where I write for Serious Eats and create social media for Sweet Roots NYC. You can also find me on Twitter, where I exclaim less articulately about food, football, and the hipster absurdities of Williamsburg.
Beyond writing about food, I’m passionate about food start-ups and the ways that food can be used as a means of ambassadorship and social entrepreneurship. I’m also secretly outdoorsy (though I typically wear sundresses when I’m not in the woods) and am gearing up to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2014, where I look forward to doggedly toting cured meats and aged cheeses in my 30-pound pack.
