I author cookbooks for Ten Speed Press/Random House, write magazine and newspaper articles, blog and ink online content. I specialize in food crafting, recipe development, recipe testing, chef and artisan profiles, food reviews, and food trend pieces. I teach classes on pickles, fermentation, curing meat, canning, smoking, fruit confections, and countless other kitchen projects. I’m a slut for business communications and marketing materials and other works for hire. I’m loads of fun on long road trips, and I make outstanding homemade peanut butter cups by the dozen.
