From homemade American cheese, to the best pie crust ever, to the art of smoking ribs — indoors. I’ve written over 150 cooking stories for the Los Angeles Times, and developed or tested thousands of recipes in my 12 years running its Test Kitchen. My stories have been syndicated and reprinted in newspapers across the nation, and one even resulted in a marriage proposal (an ode to bacon).
Additionally, I’m a longtime contributor to ‘The Splendid Table’, the nationally-syndicated radio program from American Public Media. My interviews have ranged from learning about the art of eating in space from Col. Chris Hadfield, to how to properly maintain your cast iron cookware with J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, to learning how YouTube star Hannah Hart nourishes her online community with ‘My Drunk Kitchen’. Click here for links to some of my interviews.
