Kitchen Crew bios

Lisa Byrne: “I’m the founder of Super Mom 101, and enjoy preparing delicious meals for my busy family of five. I would love to sample recipes substituting non-dairy ingredients.”

Adam Centamore: “I am a manager at Formaggio Kitchen in Cambridge. I love Harriet van Horne, who said, ‘Cooking is like love. It must be entered into with abandon, or not at all.'”

Nancy Costello: “I am a foodie, but a complete novice — well, maybe not completely, but I love to follow recipes. They don’t always come out awesome, but I still try. My significant other is an amazing cook and always trying new things, so I’m the best taste-tester.”

Nancy Dieterich: “I’m the director of Local Radio Sponsorship at WGBH.”

Cathy Huyghe: “I write for the WGBH Daily Dish blog, and formerly have worked in the kitchens of Thomas Keller, Alice Waters, and Jean-Pierre Vigato in Paris. I’m WSET-certified and author of 365daysofwine.com, published widely in print and online for stories on wine, food, and travel.”

Judy Lebel: “Some might call me a veg-aholic as I couldn’t imagine dining without fresh vegetables — and fresh fish. There’s nothing better than striking the perfect match of wine to food, maximizing the flavors of both!”

Judy Mattera: “As pastry chef and owner of Sweet Solutions, not only can I test recipes, but I can contribute in the dessert course, along with pairings for sweet and fortified wines.”

Rebecca Miller: “I was a foodie before the word existed! I learned to cook out of necessity, and necessity begat love.”

Beth O’Brien: “Food-wise, I am all about using what’s fresh that day, week, or season and have a firm belief in the power of olive oil and salt to transform any savory food into something edible, if not sublime.”

Sue Schochet: “I’m the founder of Healthy Habits Kitchen in Wellesley, where I combine my passions for cooking and sharing healthy food with the community.”

Ann Trieger: “I’ve been cooking since I was a teenager, and in the late 1970s attended cooking school in Paris for three months at Le Cordon Bleu. My certificate is for pastry, but I also took cooking classes at the school and also at La Varenne, another Paris cooking school. I cook a lot at home, and worked in the wine business for eight years.”

Steve Wasserman: “I am an amateur baker who specializes in cookies and brownies. I’ve been a volunteer at WGBH since 1967.”
