Welcome to my kitchen.


It’s my command center and studio, office and playground. It’s where I find my keys, phone and sunglasses, and keep all my toys—wood bowls and boards, blown glass and just jars, stacks of linen and napkins and too many spoons, a salt dish from Italy that has had a repair, copper from France, and always chocolate, if you know where!  

I have a thing for wine and it starts with the vines, how they stand sturdy in their place, stretched wide with roots deep. People have said that with wine we drink sunshine, taste stars. I agree.

I’m a culinary writer for Edible Bozeman, Certified Wine Professional of the CIA, Oracle survivor (23 years), professionally trained cook/eater/wine drinker (SF, Provence, and Napa Valley), and creator of Wild Rye, a Danish-style bread I sell to sourdough enthusiasts.  I moved from SF to Bozeman, Montana when I fell in love.

Amy’s enthusiasm, love, and appreciation of food is contagious!  She simplifies cooking in a way that gives room for pleasant moments in the kitchen.  Amy created and delivered a series of hands-on cooking classes for my clients this fall, an innovative and effective enhancement to their self-care and recovery.

Thank you for doing another cooking class and helping people have fun together while they learn to cook better and feed themselves food that will improve their health!  Your sunny personality combined with your depth of knowledge is exactly what is needed.
