Currently on my desk: I’m writing a cookbook with Cortney Burns, who you might know from her James Beard-winning first book, Bar Tartine: Techniques & Recipes, which was inspired by her one-of-a-kind restaurant in San Francisco.

In Cook in the Blank, I gave your favorite back-pocket recipes (think chopped salad, one-pan chicken roast, and baked mac and cheese) the Mad Libs treatment so you can improvise your way to weeknight dinner. I cooked a hog’s head, whole piglet, and 2 dozen frogs, among other things, for Isaac Toups’ ode to new Cajun. Alon Shaya and I collaborated to bring together Israeli, Italian, and Southern influences in recipes that are imaginative, aspirational, yet accessible to every home cook. I’ve also worked on Mark Bittman’s How to Bake Everything and Hartwoodfrom the dreamy, luscious destination restaurant in Tulum.

I offer professional recipe development for chefs and businesses small & large, tailoring original, creative recipes to your unique aesthetic, goals, and campaigns.

Think we might be a match made in heaven? I’d love to discuss opportunities for collaboration. Right this way!
