My relationship with food wasn’t always mutual. I was in love with food that didn’t make me feel so great. Not cool. These days, I’m choosing to spend more quality time with the kind of food that makes me feel fantastic. The good news is it doesn’t taste like wet cardboard. I hope you’ll agree.

I’m Lauren Godfrey. In a previous life I was an award winning creative director and now I’m bringing my passion for food, story telling and pretty pictures to this blog. I also spend my time working on food concept development, creative direction, recipe testing, recipe development, food styling, food writing, restaurant development, on-camera work, and cooking.

I’ve been fortunate enough to spend some time in some exceptional kitchens including SPQR, Bar Tartine and Chez Panisse.

You can also find me in Wired, the Oprah Winfrey Network, the LinkedIn “Imagine” campaignRefinery and Mother.
