I'm a New York City-based writer, cook, and cheese specialist.
I’ve worked on a broad range of creative, food-based projects, from concept development for Walt Disney and Bien Cuit Bakery, to restaurant and retail programs for Murray’s Cheese. I write the "Cheese Wisely" column for The Wall Street Journal. My writing has appeared in the New York Times, Bon Appetit, and Culture: The Word on Cheese. My work with cheese has been featured in Food & Wine, The New Yorker, and The Food Network. My books include The Art of the Cheese Plate: Pairings, Recipes, Style, Attitude, Short Stack Chèvre, and Melt, Stretch, & Sizzle: The Art of Cooking Cheese.
I live in Queens, NYC with my husband - sommelier Hristo Zisovski – and our son.
