work with me


My name is Ruthy and I live in New York City, where I work in freelance recipe testing, development and editing. I also do freelance food writing and cooking class instruction. Interested in working with me?  You can reach me here:

I’m currently a staff recipe tester for food52.  I’ve done developing work with a number of companies, including but not limited to Fleischmann’s Yeast, Karo Syrup, Kallari Organic Chocolate, the Consorzio del Prosciutto di Parma, and California Olives.  

I also do work with Cabot Cheese as a recipe editor, and have recently completed work with Penguin/Random House and DK Publishing on a number of cookbook projects, as both a recipe tester and editor. 

If you’d like to see samples of my freelance food writing and recipe development, my work has been featured in:
