Stumbling into an Obsession

Food Writing, Culinary History, Recipes & Styling, and Photography

After a successful career in travel and hospitality, Jennifer took up writing full time, parlaying humorous aspects of her life as an expatriate in Russia and her cross-cultural marriage into columns, blog posts, features, and articles.

Jennifer stumbled into food writing and photography after volunteering to write a piece about Julia Child. What had once been a weekend hobby — visiting Moscow’s farmers’ markets, experimenting in the kitchen and entertaining friends — steadily became a full-time occupation and obsession.
