Her first book, Northern Hospitality, released by Voyageur Press is available now.
With her husband Andrew, she owns the Portland Hunt + Alpine Club, a Scandinavian-influenced craft cocktail bar that is a two-time James Beard semi-finalist for "Outstanding Bar Program" and Little Giant, a neighborhood restaurant, bar and market, named to the 2017 class of the "Imbibe 75."
