I am a long time food writer, author of five books, an Italian cook, mushroom hunter , master canner, and all-around bloated pleasure seeker. I am married to architect Kevin Bone with whom I have two grown children, and live and write and cook in a loft in SoHo that Kevin moved into in 1978, when it had nothing but six urinals. I grew up in a food environment as my dad, Ed Giobbi, is an accomplished Italian cook and cookbook author. He and my mom hung out with a gang of chefs who were influential in their day, and I learned a lot from observing them. Indeed, those chefs shaped my attitude about food: to use everything, to taste constantly, and to be grateful for every mouthful.
