Greetings and Welcome! I’m Amanda, the food nerd, writer, and photographer behind Striped Spatula. Growing up, my mother and grandmother always invited me to help them in the kitchen. Whether we were assembling cream puffs, filling pans of madeleines, or prepping chicken Milanese, the food, and the time we spent making it, was an expression of love. As an adult, my passion for food and wine has only grown. There’s nothing I love more than cooking or sharing a meal with those I love.
More About Me
When I’m not cooking at home or dining out (rare moments), I enjoy playing classical piano (fun fact: I share a birthday with Beethoven), golf (let’s pretend not to notice when I “whiff” the ball), and dogs. I believe that laughter is the best medicine and that there are few bad days a warm baguette and a wedge of Triple-crème can’t improve.
