Writing About Food

Fresh-Mozzarella-Story

This month I wrote a story for my favorite publication, Saveur, which was a cool moment in my writing career. The story is about the owner of a great old-school deli a block from where Allie and I live in Hoboken. I focus on the mozzarella this guy makes from scratch every morning. He’s the best around. Check out my piece…

Desert Light

Desert Dawn steels over the McDowell Mountains in the Sonoran Desert

We took these pictures while walking, hiking, and exploring the Sonoran Desert in North Scottsdale. March is spring in the Arizona desert.
