Hi there! My name is Mimi Newman. I'm an independent food blogger, food photographer, and UX/UI/product designer.
I've been an avid home cook since forever. I grew up in a family of cooks - my grandmother's family was one of the original butchers at the Farmer's Market in LA, and I was always the sous-chef in my dad's kitchen as a kid.
My recipes here on this food blog are seasonal and market-inspired, often have Mexican inspiration, and are informed by me living in LA.
I'm not a formally trained cook; I'm self-taught and I learned a lot from watching the Food Network on TV, being an adventurous eater, reading cookbooks, and learning from my mistakes in the kitchen.
I don't really do Instagram anymore, but you can follow me on Twitter and TikTok.
I'm open to collaborations and welcome any feedback -- contact me via email!
