Formerly a senior editor at Viking Penguin, I'm the author of The Bread and the Knife: A Life in 26 Bites, published by Arcade in late 2018. During the past several years, I completed a novel and began the unexpectedly pleasurable and gratifying business of collaborating with busy professionals to capture their ideas, expertise and voice on paper. My articles and essays have been published in the New York Times, the New York Times Sunday Magazine, Food & Wine, O, and the Antioch Review. Between 2006 and 2019, I was a regular contributor to the New York Times Book Review. My essays have been anthologized in Mommy Wars: Stay-at-Home and Career Moms Face Off and Eat Memory: Great Writers at the Table.
