TEN THINGS ABOUT ME
I was born in Brooklyn (before it was hip and groovy).
I burned my parents’ kitchen down when I was 12 and didn’t cook again until I got married.
I’m married to Michael (and have been since I was a junior in college) and mom to Joshua, the grown man formerly known as “The Kid”.
I gave up working on my doctorate in gerontology to bake cookies in a restaurant basement (a job I was fired from) and thank my stars I did.
I’ve written 12 cookbooks, the latest, Dorie’s Cookies, comes out October 25, 2016.
I have four James Beard Awards (one for journalism; one for my book, Baking with Julia; one for Baking From My Home to Yours; and one for being voted into the Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America)
I’ve won the Cookbook of the Year Award from the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) … twice (once for Desserts by Pierre Hermé and once for Around My French Table)
I’m the Everyday Dorie columnist for Washington Post Food
I live in three places: New York City, Westbrook, CT and Paris, France and yes, I consider myself extraordinarily lucky
