She began working as a test cook for Cook’s Illustrated in 1999 and is responsible for the food and recipe development for all America’s Test Kitchen cookbooks. She holds an A.O.S. degree from the Culinary Institute of America and a B.A. in psychology and philosophy from SUNY Albany.

ABOUT AMERICA’S TEST KITCHEN 
America’s Test Kitchen is the most-watched cooking show on public television—over 2 million viewers tune in each week—and in January 2016, America’s Test Kitchen will launch its 16th season. In addition to the popular segments that viewers have come to love and trust, like equipment reviews, taste tests, and foolproof recipes, the 16th season will feature even more content and numerous visits with well-loved chefs!

The test kitchen chefs cook America’s favorite recipes with host Christopher Kimball and deconstruct each recipe to reveal the test kitchen’s secrets to foolproof cooking at home. This season includes 57 all-new recipes, including Raspberry Charlotte, Black Bean Burgers, Foolproof New York Cheesecake, Crispy Salt and Pepper Shrimp, Duck Fat–Roasted Potatoes, Cuban Braised Shredded Beef, Chicken Mole Poblano, Ultimate Charcoal-Grilled Steaks, Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie, and more.
America’s Test Kitchen is shot just outside Boston. The test cooks are dedicated to finding the best methods for preparing foolproof home-cooked meals. The 2,500-square-foot test kitchen in which America’s Test Kitchen is shot is the same kitchen where three dozen full-time test cooks work, testing and retesting recipes 20, 30, and sometimes 50 times, until they find the recipe that they are confident will work every time.

MASTER OF THE GRILL: FOOLPROOF RECIPES, TOP-RATED GADGETS, GEAR & INGREDIENTS PLUS CLEVER TEST KITCHEN TIPS & FASCINATING FOOD SCIENCE
Part field guide to grilling and barbecuing and part cookbook, Master of the Grill features a wide variety of kitchen-tested recipes for meat, poultry, seafood, vegetables, pizza, and more. These are the recipes everyone should know how to make— the juiciest burgers, barbecue chicken that’s moist not tough, tender grill-smoked pork ribs, the greatest steak (and grilled potatoes to serve alongside). Regional specialties are included, too—learn how to make Cowboy Steaks, Alabama BBQ Chicken, and Kansas City Sticky Ribs. Colorful photography captures the beauty of the recipes and step-by-step shots guide you through everything you need to know. A section on grilling essentials covers the pros and cons of gas and charcoal grills and which might be right for you, as well as the tools you’ll use with them— such as grill brushes, tongs, vegetable baskets, and wood chips and chunks.

"A terrifically accessible and useful guide to grilling in all its forms that sets a new bar for its competitors on the bookshelf." –Publishers Weekly

Are precut steak tips worth buying? Why make divots in burgers? What’s the best supermarket barbecue sauce? (And when is it worth splurging for the high-end one?) Are all grill tongs created equal? America’s most trusted test kitchen fires up the grill to answer those questions and many more in the inventive new book Master of the Grill.

With recipes and techniques arranged by skill level—from The Basics to The Easy Upgrades to The Serious Projects—cooks of all stripes can dive in and choose their outdoor cooking adventure. Make classic, contemporary, and regional recipes like Perfect Grilled Hamburgers, Barbecued Pulled Chicken, Grilled Tomato and Cheese Pizzas, and Kansas City Sticky Ribs, as well as Grill-Smoked Salmon, Grill-Roasted Prime Rib, Grilled Lobsters with Herbed Garlic Butter, andGrilled Fruit (with a variety of finishing sauces and glazes). Every recipe includes instructions for both charcoal and gas grills and there are hundreds of full-color recipe and step photos throughout the book.

ABOUT WINELA
wineLA is about enhancing the wine culture of Los Angeles. To do so, wine must be in rhythm with fashion, music, food and other beverages.  It must take advantage of the geography, the architecture and the centers of interest. Los Angeles is a giant playground with an amazing array of venues, spaces, wine bars, restaurants, beaches, roof tops, gardens, and magical views. We want to be a part of the LA lifestyle, the wine lifestyle, and celebrate the people, the place and the passion.

wineLA will promote significant events, occasional classes, and tastings of merit. This is phase two of what we started 20 years ago at LearnAboutWine.com - America’s first wine education website and first in wine event creation. LearnAboutWine will now evolve onto a digital platform; the transformation will take some time; so we will slowly rebrand our event efforts onto wineLA, reduce the number of activities we focus on, and elevate our efforts to focus on the next big thing… Doing what is best for the wine industry and the communities we serve.  Edicts:  innovate, evolve and excite.

We thank you for joining our newsletter, we will be sending fewer emails and packing them with amazing content. We want to be your wine content provider and would love to hear about your favorite places, your music, your locations - we want to be under the influence of what ignites your passion for Los Angeles.
