The Crafty Cook Nook is your hotspot for recipes, memoir, and place-based storytelling. Memory, place, and family matter, and these topics are almost always connected to food for me.
My traveler/chef inspiration?
Anthony Bourdain. I don’t drop the f-bomb as much as he does, but I hope to imbue the food, places, and people I’ve encountered with an equal measure of humor and earnest appreciation.
Besides being the creator and author of The Crafty Cook Nook, I’m a reformed academic and a recovering MFA student with a novel in the works. When I’m not working at the Colorado state capitol as a legislative editor, I can be found with my nose in a book, my hands covered in soy sauce, or my person out and about in Denver taking in the sights or hiking and running in the Rocky Mountain region.
Thanks for joining me on this food-centric journey.
