Courtney McBroom grew up a spirited child, even by Texas standards.  In the third grade, she received her first cookbook, The Care Bears’ Party Cookbook, and fell deeply in love with cooking, entertaining, magical rainbows and caring A LOT about everything.  She has been kicking major ass in kitchens ever since.  She went pro over a decade ago, learning the ropes in both savory and pastry kitchens.  In New York City, she worked as Culinary Director of Momofuku Milk Bar.  She loves food writing and does it whenever she can.  She currently lives in Los Angeles where she throws tons of dinner parties and is in the midst of creating the next cool thing in food.  Whenever she orders Asian takeout, they always put at least 4 pairs of chopsticks in her delivery bag.  "There's just no way one person could eat that many dumplings," they think.  They are wrong.*  She only listens to “really good” music and isn’t into eating offal, even though she did try calf brains once.
