Work With Me
Send me an email at email@example.com to discuss your event and work with me to create something beautiful, delicious, and entirely you.
Cooking Classes: Birthday Parties, Team-building Activities, Private Classes
Whether teaching kids or adults, I seek to infuse creativity into all my cooking classes. I offer easily-configurable recipes so that everyone feels comfortable experimenting and still ends up with something delicious.
Small Gatherings & Celebration Meals
I’d be happy to work with you to create a unique meal, party spread, or dessert for small parties of 8 – 20 people. I will incorporate foods that are meaningful to you and navigate any set of dietary restrictions.
I’m interested in working with artists to produce events or physical works. The Book of #veGAN, my collaboration with AI-artist Helena Sarin, was published in 2022 and pairs my vegan recipes with machine-generated vegetable artwork. I co-produced an event called Recompose that brought together classical music and mushroom-based dishes into a multi-sensory meditation on decay and regeneration.
Case study: A wild May Day brunch for families
To celebrate the spring “wake-up” of Stuy Cove Park, a native food forest in Manhattan, I worked with park caretaker Candace Thompson to develop a menu that incorporated foraged foods into a brunch spread for volunteers and a visiting Girl Scout troop.
Curly dock is a wild cousin of buckwheat and a common weed. These fresh-baked bagels were soft and chewy with a nutty taste.
I made a spread similar to scallion cream cheese by straining local goat yogurt and mixing with foraged field garlic.
This was a creamy cashew-based pesto with spicy foraged greens.
Hazelnuts make for a particularly rich nut butter, which was sweetened with maple syrup.
Case study: A Socially-Distanced Stoop Wedding
During the early pandemic, some friends decided to have a small wedding ceremony and then turn a Brooklyn brownstone stoop into their reception venue. People dropped by throughout the day for champagne and dessert. Since they needed something that could be served individually, I made mason jar tiramisu “dirt cups” with crumbled Oreos and black sesame, garnished with flowers.
