Hi, hello. I’m Katie. I’m glad you’re here!
I’m the recipe developer and photographer here at Food + Table. I’m an academic turned baker and lover of food and story. I grew up on the Mississippi gulf coast, lived in Dallas and Boston, and currently reside in Manchester, England with my husband, Sam.
I’ve been cooking and baking for years, and I love sharing the things I make with others. I didn’t go to culinary school, but I’m not a self-taught cook or baker either. I learned from my mom, grandparents, and friends. I’ve read cookbook authors and food writers as diligently as (or maybe more than) my textbooks over the years. I learned from people who love food and value how it brings us all together.
I’m fascinated by what food says about culture and the people it sustains. I’m drawn into memories and stories surrounding food—the way that a friend’s face lights up when they talk about their favorite childhood dish; the smell of something baking that brings you back to your mom’s kitchen. For me, cooking is about sharing and connecting with others at the table. In this space, I hope to share bits of my life with you through food that you can share at your own table.
