Nicole Wong first became interested in food when she volunteered at her school’s student organic garden. She went on to graduate with a degree in Conservation and Resource Studies, focused on sustainable and just food systems. After spending time on a farm and in a plant based kitchen, she now works for an organic produce distributor in San Francisco and writes whenever she can. Give her peanut or eggplant anything and she is happy.
Molly Bradley is a writer and editor based in Brooklyn, NY. While studying English literature and creative writing at Oberlin College and Columbia, she found her way into restaurant kitchens, patisseries, and food trucks as a cook and baker, and keeps finding her way back to working with food. Her current obsessions are hen-of-the-woods mushrooms, pickled beets, and radiatore pasta. But as an American raised in France, her longest and most loving relationship has been with butter.
Laura Sorkin is a freelance writer and co-owner of Runamok Maple. She has a degree from the French Culinary Institute in NYC, but only spent a brief period as a prep cook in some very good restaurants before moving on to graduate school and then to a farm in Vermont. She has grown every fruit and vegetable that can possibly grow in a northern New England climate, plus a few that supposedly can't (a Vermont-grown pineapple and the picture to prove it). Though she tries to live a deep and meaningful life, what usually preoccupies her mind is what she is going to make for dinner. She is married and has two children.
Originally from the “sweetest place on earth”, Hershey, PA, Libby grew up on East Chocolate Avenue. She is a recent graduate of the University of Vermont, where she was introduced to the “maple creemee”, soft-serve ice cream made with pure Vermont maple syrup. She is currently working in Boston at a law office and hopes to attend law school in the future. Libby’s current go-to snack is Justin’s Maple Almond Butter (do you see the theme here?). Some of her favorite meals have been in: Wanaka, New Zealand, Suva, Fiji, and her mother’s home in Seattle. Libby can be found watching Broad City, laughing with her friends, or running with her two older sisters.
