I’m as passionate about food as I am about writing. My parents say as a baby when taken to restaurants I ate pats of butter and cried until given a bone to gnaw on. Not much has changed since then.
While working as a strategic marketing professional at Landor Associates I started writing about food because my friends and family were asking me where and what to eat. Only months after it launched, Forbes chose my blog, Cooking with Amy, as one of the top five best food blogs, praising my writing as “smart, cozy and witty.” Since then my blog has been featured and my recipes reprinted in many newspapers and magazines in the U.S. and the world.
Since then I’ve written two books, Williams Sonoma New Flavors for Appetizers and WinePassport: Portugal and contributed to both Creating A Meal You’ll Love and ThinkFood: Brain Healthy Recipes. I’ve written for Frommer’s. Gastronomica, Via, Cheers, Glam, Bay Area Bites, Citysearch among other publications. I’ve edited a food lover’s guide for Zagat and cookbooks and diet books for Callisto Media.
In addition to brand consulting, I also work with many corporate clients as a copywriter and recipe developer with a focus on recipes for home cooks. I’ve written copy for clients ranging from Columbus Salame to Williams-Sonoma. I have also judged many food contests and awards including the the National Beef Cook-Off , Good Food Awards, IACP Bert Greene Awards, the Shuck & Swallow Challenge, the Chocolate Salon Awards and the Tasty Awards.
I have served on board of the San Francisco Professional Food Society and am a member of the International Association of Culinary Professionals and the International Association of Food, Wine and Travel Writers Association. I have also spoken and moderated panels at numerous food, travel and blogging conferences.
