What brought you to Baltimore? My family has lived in Baltimore since the 1800s. I currently live in the northeast part of the city.
What’s your connection to Baltimore? The food! Particularly cooking and recipes. I have developed thousands of recipes of all kinds, but I love to develop recipes of regional Baltimore and Maryland dishes the most. “I have a great interest in regional foods and food history and love to share this information with others. In fact, I have a BA in History (focusing on the socio-economic growth of cities) and MA in Education.” (Source)
What do you like about Baltimore? I love living in Baltimore. I love being near the water, living in the city, all of the festivals, concerts and events I can go to, the restaurant scene, and the quality and affordability of life here.
New Baltimoreans should definitely check out: Tuesday Market in Lauraville: I frequently pick up produce and occasionally a food truck dinner from the market.
