Inspiration

This essay changed the way I thought about food and health.

This book changed the way I thought about food and sustainable agriculture.

I am endlessly fascinated by the science behind cooking and really enjoy Harold McGee’s work.

Blood, Bones & Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton is one of the best memoirs I’ve read.

I wish I could write like M.F.K. FisherRuth Reichl, and Nigella Lawson.

My first “grown up” cookbook was How To Be A Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson. Before that, it was the Williams-Sonoma Kids Baking book.

I have a girl crush on Daniela Soto-Innes, the Chef de Cuisine at Cosme in New York City. She won the Rising Star Chef Award at the James Beard Awards when she was just 25. (Cosme also happens to be my favourite restaurant (right now) in NYC. Other close contenders are NixRoberta’s, and Xi’An Famous Foods. The best meal I’ve eaten in the city was the tasting menu at Blue Hill.)

I subscribe to Food and Wine, Saveur Magazine, Bon Appétit Magazine. I religiously purchase the New York Times every Wednesday, because that’s when their food section comes out. I also enjoy reading Cherry Bombe, Lucky Peach, and Render.

My favourite corner of the food interwebs includes Food52Civil Eats, the Kitchn, Eater, Serious Eats, and Food Politics by Marion Nestle. I do not like Yelp.

The first blog I ever read was My New Roots. Sarah B was my art teacher in high school, and without her, I would have never begun to think about food and health the way I do now. For that, I am eternally grateful. I am also always inspired by her work.

When I need motivation, this is what I watch. Oh, and this.

Among many, many other blogs, I really love Orangette and Lottie + Doof
