  • Leah studied modern Italian cuisine in Florence, Italy.
  • Her wide range of food knowledge spans everything from vegan cheesesteaks to the perfect way to ripen avocados.
  • Leah is an avid baker and her pies range from thimble-sized to sheet pan-wide.


Leah started baking and cooking at age three. She was discouraged from attending culinary school and instead went on to gain a degree in Education. She found her way back to cooking by teaching cooking classes to her students. From there, she began recipe developing and food photography for About.com, which then became The Spruce Eats. She began working in food photography for local restaurants and has loved combining her passions of teaching, food, and photography.


Leah earned a Bachelor of Science in psychology and special education at Marist College.
