As the daughter of a chef and restaurateur, my love for cooking and NYC’s food culture runs deep (my dad and stepmom own Clinton St. Baking Co.) When I started working in television (Live! With Regis and Kelly, Who Wants to be a Millionaire), I missed talking about food every day, so I transitioned into producing food content. I’ve produced episodes of TLC’s Cake Boss and cast more than 100 episodes of the Food Network’s hit series Chopped.
Today I’m programming live events at Vox Media but continue to channel my love for cooking, baking and traveling into Bell & Basket. As the recipe developer, tester and writer, I love the creative process from “script to screen.”
Why is the site called Bell & Basket? I’m constantly on my bike and always pulling over. Whether stopping by a yard sale or the farmers market, I’m inspired by whatever I can take home in my bike basket.
What can you always find in our kitchen? President Butter (salted), seltzer from famed seltzer man Eli Miller (in his beautiful glass bottles), organic frozen bananas, Variety coffee and homemade granola (stay tuned for that recipe).
Who takes the beautiful photos? My husband, Colin Berg takes all of the photos and does most of the video work. I prefer shooting in natural light but during the occasional night shoot, I’m lucky to have a lighting expert by my side.
