Hi and welcome! You wouldn’t know it based on standard rules of phonics, but my name rhymes with Amy Snowbear. That é is something I’m proud to have in common with Beyoncé.

I’m a native New Orleanian, so an ardent commitment to food is in my DNA. I work for Mark Bittman, research and develop recipes, and eat like it’s my job (sometimes it is). I contributed to the Hartwood cookbook and have written for Food52 and Serious Eats. My wheelhouse is using food as a means of community building, ambassadorship, and social change; my spirit vegetable is a golden beet. As a Brown undergrad, I wrote a column about dogs and had a reputation as the girl who kept Sriracha in her backpack.

Let’s get to know each other! Get in touch and/or let’s meet up for a pastry.
