  • Sara has been obsessed with cooking since she was 10 years old, when her mom taught her how to make chicken soup.
  • She graduated from the French Culinary Institute in 2011, where she fell madly in love with all that butter and cream and remains devoted to it to this day.
  • She has read Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" cover to cover twice.


Sara is a freelance writer with over 10 years of experience writing about food, cooking, cocktails, and spirits. She has loved the kitchen and everything in it for all of her adult life, and since graduating from the French Culinary Institute, she has continued to pursue her passion for writing about food. From June 2020 to August 2023, she lived in Bratislava, Slovakia with her husband Brandon, and started a baking business out of her home kitchen, providing "American-style" baked goods to local coffeeshops in town. When she isn't trying new recipes or reading Food & Wine Magazine, Sara loves planning her next vacation, perusing the Union Square Greenmarket for cheese, and trying all the exotic potato chips from her local Japanese market.


Sara has a bachelor's degree in journalism from Hofstra University.
