Please tell us briefly about your overall interest in food and food books.

Food... interested in all of it from cooking to grocery shopping to eating. Verged on veggie for a little while but now really enjoy being a carnivore - the redder, the better. I have engaged with books intensely for even longer than I've been choosing my own food, and love getting new ideas for food from books.

Who are your top three food writers?

Deb Perelman of the Smitten Kitchen blog Stephane Reynaud for the drawings and amusement in Ripailles working on finding a third

Do you like to cook? If so, what type of cooking do you do? (It's just fine if you don't cook.)

I cook pretty much everything - weekly CSA-style boxes make me think outside the box and try new things, though my forte and favorite is probably dessert.

Will you please post a recognizable photo of yourself? (That's a requirement for this Meetup.)



I have been in Nola for about two years now and am excited to test out another of Lorraine's groups. Booze and books has been great and I like food even more than booze, so this seems like a good idea.
