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 currently based in Brooklyn, where I write for Food52 and Serious Eats and previously created 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. I graduated from Brown in May 2013 with a rather versatile degree in Ethics & Political Philosophy. During my time there, I wrote food columns and weekly restaurant reviews for two campus publications, Post- and BlogDailyHerald, and had a reputation as “the girl who keeps Sriracha in her backpack.” I peaked as a journalist with my column DogDailyHerald, which featured dogs from the Brown community.
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, as soon as I scrounge up six months of free time, plan to hike the Appalachian Trail, where I’ll doggedly tote cured meats and aged cheeses for sustenance.
