Description:

I’m a flavor maven, chef and food consultant living in Connecticut. I work the savory side as a cookbook author and recipe developer. But many know me for my expertise in bread baking and desserts.

My aim is to inspire others to be bold and curious in their food discoveries.

When Charlie van Over and I opened Restaurant du Village in Chester, Connecticut in 1979, we were pursuing our dream of capturing the spirit of France in a country restaurant. And for 11 wild and delicious years, we lived the dream. Today, I’m part of the team that produces On Cooking and On Baking, gold-standard culinary textbooks used in professional cooking schools across the country. As a food consultant, I travel the world visiting almond growers, bakers, flavor scientists, pastry chefs and all manner of farm and fishery.

Exciting food experiences have been front and center for much of my life.

I believe that:

  • There is nothing better for one’s sense of well being than cooking and eating food grown close to home. Wherever that may be.
  • Anyone can learn to feel comfortable in the kitchen.
  • Friends and a good loaf of bread make the meal.
  • A little wine helps too.

All About Almonds


This session is all about almonds! Whether you are a baker, grower, or simply curious, let's chat! On a trip to Morocco with a group of food importers in 1994, I became fascinated with almonds. There I first noticed that not all almonds are alike. The brown, flat dusty nuts I ate there were enormous. The size of my thumb, they had deep ridges and a bright burst of almondy taste. That chance encounter led to many things including a full-time job working with nuts.

Let’s crack open your curiosity about the elegant and versatile almond, how to incorporate it into your cooking or develop enticing new products using them.
