Who am I?
I’m Annie. I live in
New York City Minneapolis and I am a chef’s wife (a.k.a. a restaurant widow). My claim to fame is writing that one article about being married to a chef.
"If tall white hats, muscular forearms, and a way with knives make you tingle, then you may be primed to date a chef….one writer went so far as to marry one." - Grub Street
Professionally, I’m a former consultant at a boutique restaurant consulting firm I help founded (Supper’d), and a Tumblr #food editor. Currently, I’m the editor of a new blog from The Kitchens at General Mills (a.k.a. Betty Crocker Kitchens) called Tasteseekers Kitchen. When I have time, I also take pictures of food as a freelancer and I write about food in various places on the internet.
This blog, f&f, is basically one big brain fart: a personal journal, a space to develop recipe ideas, and a place to share interesting things I find on the internet. Because food is a huge part of my life, as my job and as my passion, this blog is mostly about food. I also blog about my food adventures, and my life with and without my Chef. F&F also gives me a chance to share an unapologetically honest perspective about the restaurant industry, marriage, and relationships.
Who is Chef?
I have two great loves in life: food and the guy I lovingly call by his career pseudonym, Chef, on f&f. He is the dude I married, a Culinary Institute of America - Hyde Park alum, a New York City chef, the former executive chef of 6th Street Kitchen, the opening executive chef of Osteria Cotta, and a Saveur Magazine Tastemaker. Because I have his consent, you’ll read about Chef and my life as a restaurant widow on f&f every once in awhile.
Who is Bacon?
You’ll see Bacon make an appearance here and there. He’s our one year old Beagle-Jack Russell.
