She is a self-taught cook who has supplemented her kitchen skills with education at the Natural Gourmet Institute, the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and the Institute of Culinary Education in New York.
She began a career in journalism as a stringer for the New York Times andthe Associated Press while still in college. She went on to write for the Los Angeles Times and Dallas Morning News then to produce television and internet programming for ABC News and FOX.
She is a dedicated foodie who is blending her passions of cooking and communications.
In addition to writing OneScaryVegetable.com, she is currently working on a cookbook. The working title is “Pomegranate Dreams: A mosaic of Andalucian cuisine”. The project is part travelogue, part cookbook, a moveable feast from Huelva to Almeria. The recipes will be enhanced by suggested menus, music playlists and recommended wines and spirits. And guest chefs from Seville, Granada and de la Frontera have contributed their favorite regional recipes — including Michelin star chefs.
