Deb Perelman

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. Most recently, Perelman published Smitten Kitchen Every Day, which brings passionate home cooks new recipes designed to elevate their meals with her signature flavorful and approachable flair.

    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.

  • Praise for Deb Perelman


    The event was indeed a great success, and the crowd was very enthusiastic. During her visit, Deb engaged with people from all different age groups—graciously and with every single one. Some of her biggest fans were between the ages of 0 and ten years old. Deb was just as approachable and genuine as I expected from the years I have been following her. I have been a librarian since 2014 and last night is one of the brightest highlights for my career.
