Hi! I'm Amy Sherman, a San Francisco–based cookbook author, food writer and recipe developer. I launched the blog, Cooking with Amy, in June of 2003. Not long after it was chosen one of the top five food blogs by Forbes and also singled out by The Guardian (UK) as a top food blog. It has received well over 4 million visits.

On the blog I offer original recipes, reviews, commentary, news and culinary travel information. I hope you enjoy visiting as much as I enjoy writing and sharing my discoveries.

I was honored that my blog is listed as a “Site we Love” by Saveur, linked to a by Cooking Light, Epicurious, Good Housekeeping, Redbook and the New York Times (Bay Area edition) among others and was “blog of the day” on the Julie & Julia movie web site.

I have written for various magazines and online sites, including Cheers, where I wrote about wine and spirits and Gastronomica where I have written a number of book reviews as well as features for both A La Carte and Marin magazines. For over a year I wrote about culinary travel for Frommers.com, and have been a contributor at Fodor's, Epicurious blog, Epi-Log. I wrote restaurant reviews for SF Station (a local city guide) and was a weekly contributor at KQED’s food blog, Bay Area Bites for over five years. I was also contributing editor at Glam. More recently I have written for FoodNetwork, OpenTable, Recipe.com, Refinery 29 and various other publications both online and in print.

I'm the author of Williams-Sonoma New Flavors for Appetizers and Wine Passport: Portugal, A Microwave, A Mug, A Meal, and wrote the introduction to a reprint of the classic Jane Grigson’s Vegetable Book.

My corporate recipe development clients include American Lamb Board, Copper River Marketing, Dannon, Keurig, MyWinesDirect, USAPears and the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board. Need recipes? Contact me!
