I’m Ari, and I’m so glad
My experience as a chef in NYC fine dining restaurants has helped me streamline my process in kitchens and help ingredients shine. I can’t wait to share my passion for cooking, photography, and family with you.
I have always loved food. So much so that I left a PhD program to work for mere pennies in NYC fine dining restaurants. It was grueling, but it gave me the experience I craved and the confidence I needed to figure out both what I like to eat, and how to work more efficiently in kitchens.
As a photographer and stylist, I work hard to transform food into approachable, yet elevated dishes that inspire you to cook. My unique culinary experience has helped to shape my trademark style and aesthetic (plating matters!), and in turn, how I approach food photography, recipe development, and styling. That’s exactly what you’ll find here: recipes that impress with minimal effort.
When I’m not working, you can most often find me in our kitchen, a glass of rosé in hand, showing my three kiddos the magic of home cooking. The recipes you’ll find here are inspired by a love of culture, travel, and making restaurant-worthy meals attainable for home cooks. So turn on some music, pour yourself a glass of wine, and let’s get cooking!
