Italian Food, Creole And Cajun Food, Campervan Cooking
  • Bridget worked as the key recipe developer for Gustiamo, an importer of high-quality Italian food products based in the Bronx.
  • As a native New Orleanian, Bridget knows her way around Cajun and Creole cuisine. She's been cooking étouffée, gumbo, and red beans her whole life.
  • She spent nearly a year living and cooking in converted camper vans in New Zealand and the United States, where she learned a thing or two about efficiency.


Bridget has lived, worked, and cooked in seven countries and can read cookbooks in four languages. Before moving to Italy to pursue a degree in food marketing, she was the press attaché at the Consulate General of France in New Orleans. She's written countless articles on the cultural melting pot that is the Caribbeans' "most northern city" and mingled with visiting chefs such as Babette de Rozières. She has also worked in countless restaurants across the globe, from Auckland to New Orleans, but these days, you'll find her eating her way across her new home city of Santa Fe, New Mexico.


Bridget graduated with honors in international relations and international development from Tulane University before earning a master's in food culture, marketing, and communication from the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Piedmont, Italy.
