Welcome Our New Nosher

She’s already gotten started with her wonderful Genius Kitchen Tips, but I want to take a minute to give a formal welcome to Jessica Fisher, who’s stepping in as Acting Nosher while our Original Nosher is off resting up and laboring.

Jessica attended the joint program between Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary. While finishing up her undergraduate studies, Jessica enrolled at the Natural Gourmet Institute where she became a certified Natural Foods chef. She now lives in Chicago where, as a PresenTense fellow, she is starting Dinner Around the Table, a non-profit organization aimed at teaching Jewish families how to cook and enjoy food together around the dinner table. You can find her tweeting about all things food, health, and Judaism @JessicaAFisher. You can find her personal blog at orange ideal and you can find her all month, right here on the Nosher.

Join me in giving Jessica a very warm welcome. And pull up a chair—I know she has lots of delicious things to share.
