About me

My name is Grace, and I wield a Chinese cleaver as readily as a pen. I currently work as an Assistant Editor at America’s Test Kitchen, where I review the latest in kitchen equipment, gizmos and ingredients.
I have a BA in art history and a minor in Spanish from the University of Pittsburgh, and have extensive experience as a writer, recipe developer and illustrator. I’ve written for the likes of Bon Appetit, Taste Cooking, Rhode Island Monthly magazine, the University of Rhode Island Magazine, Salt & Pepper, and ecoRI News.


I am an avid cook with experience in restaurant and test kitchens, and this blog is a space for me to showcase recipes I’ve developed. While I’m still getting the hang of food styling, each recipe is carefully tested and (boyfriend) approved. 


In addition to recipe development and testing, I am an experienced freelance writer, reporter and illustrator. Need help cleaning up or designing your resume? I’ve got you covered. Looking for a writer to cover a story or help craft a blog post? I can help. On the food side, if you ever want someone to cater for you or teach you the easiest way to chop an onion, reach out!
