I’ve been happily busy of late and have even had the satisfaction of seeing a few pieces in print. (Remember print?) Here’s a summary:
The May issue of InStyle ran a few Mother’s Day interviews with actors and their moms. I got to meet Chace Crawford (from Gossip Girl!) and his sweet mom Dana. I totally did not call him Nate throughout my interview. OK, I maybe did do that. I also interviewed Blair and Marilyn Underwood, who are lovely.
The May Men’s Health contains a couple of my pieces. I wrote a “match fancy bar food to the right drink” bit with help from the very smart St. John Frizell, and contributed to a larger feature.
Over at CHOW, where I’m a Contributing Editor, co-producer Alex Lisowksi and I pulled together a fun picnic segment thanks to flexible friends and the fine Jamaican food in Flatbush. This week we’re filming an African food segment, about which I am stoked.
Last but not least, I did some copywriting for new food site Gilt Taste. Did you know it’s possible to write 39 tiny pieces in three days? I did not. I wrote about Mitibleu and Mangalica, Persille de Beaujolais and Bee Chocolates. They’ve got a great crew over there, and I wish them the best of luck.
