Through their work theyÆve met a lot of chefs, eaten at a lot of restaurants, done a lot of research and made a lot of notes. TheyÆre aggregators of good information.

She currently works as a food researcher, writer and consultant. BrandonÆs career includes marketing, public speaking, publishing and global travel û all held together by a pen and a camera.
