Perry is a food writer, photographer and recipe developer based in New York City. She cooks every day, and eats even more often. In fact, she loves food so much that without it, she'd probably die. Perry grew up in Denver, Colorado and was raised by two Thai grandmothers who taught her the importance of cooking with all five senses and never adhering to a diet with a name. She has a degree in anthropology — four years spent nerding out over food history and culture — and a slightly more practical master’s degree in journalism.
