I am a freelance writer, a mother, a gardener, a forager, an aspiring and ever-learning cook. My writing appears in a variety of publications, including The Boston Globe, AFAR, Culture, The Art of Eating, Saveur, the Utne Reader, The Sun Magazine, Big Sky Journal and Montana Quarterly.
With my children, Jasper and Sylvie, I live in two rural communities on opposite sides of the Atlantic: one at the edge of the mountains in southeastern Montana, the other where the mountains meet the sea on the southern Peloponnese Peninsula in Greece.
As a writer, I try to stick to subjects that center around my passion: the culture of food. But like many freelancers, my stories hit on a wide variety of subjects, from travel to rodeo, yoga to an interview in long-form of the New Jersey-born kirtan wallah, Krishna Das. It is here, at The Shepherd and the Olive Tree, that I indulge in my passion, exploring the traditional foodways of the Peloponnese.
