Great content is created for people, not eyeballs. Effective content marketing hits the sweet spot where your goals intersect with what your audience needs and desires.
Content Kitchen offers food-focused digital strategy, from project work to full-scale, cross-platform plans encompassing onsite editorial, email campaigns, e-books, social media, recipe development and food photography.
And what could be more fun than that? I’ve been lucky to spend my career developing audience-focused lifestyle content that surprises, engages, inspires and informs readers.
I’ve visited all seven continents on Earth!

I started out covering travel, health, fashion and shelter for a national wire service and magazines. Then, in 2002, everything shifted. I went to Cooking Light, where I led the food team to develop award-winning feature stories. I got hooked on covering all things edible, and in 2009, I got my culinary diploma from Le Cordon Bleu in Los Angeles in order to improve my skills in the kitchen and deepen my knowledge about cooking techniques and ingredients. Since then, my work has appeared in the pages of Vegetarian Times, Natural Health and on top national health websites. I’ve even scripted nutrition videos for Dr. Oz. Why focus on food? Because it’s about so much more than what’s on the plate. What we eat touches on everything that’s important. Pleasure, physical health, emotional well-being, community, politics and family — it all starts in the kitchen!

Quick, name a Russian dish. Bet “borscht” is the first thing that comes to mind. It’s practically a national dish in Russia, Ukraine and Poland.
Traditionally, this simple soup, also called borsch, starring beets (with a whole lotta other vegetables as supporting players) is made with beef or chicken stock and garnished with a dollop of sour cream. But this vegan version is a variation of a recipe I developed for the January/Feburary 2015 issue of Women’s Health magazine and gets its richness from a luxurious drizzle of walnut oil. You can also bolster this jewel-tone soup (using purple potatoes enhances its hue) with mushrooms and/or white kidney beans. I’d also garnish it with barley. Whatever add-ins you choose, the soup is an antioxidant superpower that will help boost your immune system.
Borscht is served hot or cold, but I love it hot with a side of Polska Foods’ Mushroom & Cabbage Pierogi, which I discovered at the Fancy Food Show in January. Talk about a meal that puts me in touch with my Ukrainian roots — Смачного!
