Chef, bestselling cookbook author, and creative force behind the popular Smitten Kitchen food blog

  • About Deb Perelman

    Deb Perelman is a food writer and the home cook, photographer, and publisher behind the wildly popular Smitten Kitchen food blog. Winner of Saveur’s Best Cooking Blog of 2011 award, Smitten Kitchen has amassed a huge following due to Perelman’s ability to translate ambitious, sophisticated flavors into easy-to-follow recipes. The long-awaited New York Times bestseller The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook (2012) compiles favorite and innovative recipes, Perelman’s own beautiful photography, and is peppered with her distinctive “no-fuss” cooking philosophy.

    Working out of her apartment’s 42-square-foot kitchen, Perelman draws on a unique sense of humor and personal anecdotes to connect with her audience. Her approachable style and infectious enthusiasm make her a great fit for special events, luncheons or dinners, women’s organizations, or anywhere food lovers congregate.

    A graduate of George Washington University, Perelman cemented her love for food with odd jobs at bakeries, coffee shops, and ice cream stores before she began blogging. She has written for Martha Stewart Living, Parenting, and NPR, and she lives in New York City with her husband and son.
