My burning desire to cook...without burning down the house
Me, I'm Alyssa Shelasky. I'm a writer. Mostly for New York Magazine's Grub Street, but I also have a book coming out. They say I'm a bona fide member of the food universe. Although, I'm hardly a gourmet or gourmand; I don't even know the difference. Just trying to rock the apron, grow my garden, my imagination, and hopefully my recipe repertoire. And if none of that works out, I'm good with spoonfuls of Nutella, so-so Prosecco and the tough and tender life of New York City.
