Hi and welcome! I hope you like to eat.
I’m a New Orleans-based writer and editor who transforms brilliant visions into the kind of cookbooks that get stained with sauces, shared with family, read on couches, and displayed on coffee tables. Think of me as a translator: I convey ideas, techniques, and beloved flavors in such a way that they’re accessible to and replicable by anyone. I collaborated with Alon Shaya on his upcoming cookbook (Knopf, spring 2018), Mark Bittman on How to Bake Everything, and Eric & Mya Werner on Hartwood. I also develop recipes for brand partners, test and edit recipes until they’re airtight, and consult on cookbooks from proposal to publication. It’s so much fun that Thrillist featured me on a list of dream food jobs.
You wouldn’t know it based on rules of phonics, but my name rhymes with Amy Snowbear. My wheelhouse is using food as a means of community building and ambassadorship; my spirit vegetable is a golden beet. In college, I wrote a column about dogs and had a reputation as the girl who kept Sriracha in her backpack.
