Emily Monaco — Contributing Writer

Emily Monaco is a food lover living and writing in Paris. Her first brushes with green living came after reading Michael Pollan’s article on the mistreatment of cattle, an article that led to her immediate conversion to vegetarianism. After a year of living without meat, she decided it was more important to eat the right kind of meat, and lo and behold, another organic home chef was born. Emily’s interests lie in the French tradition of eating local without even knowing it and translating these second-nature habits to the American kitchen — from growing friendly with your market vendors to exploring recipe possibilities to make seasonal fruits and veggies exciting every day. You can find her recipes and food-related ramblings on her blog, Tomato Kumato, and you can follow her on Twitter @emiglia.
