Kristen Miglore left her very reasonable career in economic analysis to work in food media in 2007. She has since earned a culinary degree from ICE and a Master's in Food Studies from NYU, where she was pleased by how much of her work involved scouring 19th-century newspapers, eating pizza, and writing all about it.

A sometime Californian, she now writes, edits, and tests recipes from her sixth-floor New York City walk-up apartment. She is currently the Editor of food52.com, a spirited online food community, blog, and curated crowd-sourced cookbook. Her work has also appeared in Saveur, The Wall Street Journal, Restaurant Business, and The Martha Stewart Show.
