Carolyn Cope tried out several careers after graduating from law school at Columbia University. Corporate law and healthcare consulting didn't stick, but she started blogging back in 2008 when blogs were just taking off.
Cope volunteered at a local Community Supported Agriculture farm and Umami Girl began as a place for members to find recipes for the vegetables in their farm share. It soon grew to include a more varied collection of recipes, plus stories on family, life, and home.
