Esther has loved food since she was a young child. Once she became an adult, she developed a appreciation of wine, cheese, scotch, and complex flavors. She cooks avidly in her spare time and watches many cooking shows. She loves to share the knowledge, experience, recipes, and trial-and-error expertise she's gained over the years. Her ultimate goal is to enable other people to create delicious snacks, dinners, and party foods that are true to the gourmet foods they are inspired by. She loves to cook simply and with as little fuss as possible. One of her favorite guilty pleasures is a vintage port with a big wedge of Stilton or Shropshire blue cheese. She often ghost-writes for different food and recipe websites and blogs.
