Hi and welcome! I hope you like to eat.

I develop and consult on cookbooks to transform brilliant visions and recipes into the kind of books that get stained with sauces, shared with family, read on couches, and displayed on coffee tables.  I worked with Mark Bittman on How to Bake Everything and have contributed to Hartwood, Food52Serious Eats. I also cater for everything from big dinner parties to hectic workweeks, and I teach cooking skills and food literacy to opportunity youth in New Orleans.

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. If it seems like I’m food-obsessed, you can blame my hometown, New Orleans—that’s just how it is here.

Get in touch to discuss your next book, meal, or the finer points of cheeseburgers.
