Emily and Matt Clifton

Emily's culinary adventures began on the gritty streets of 1970s Manhattan, where she ate Pernil and kimchi more often than peanut butter and jelly. Now she lives in upstate NY and develops recipes that combine locally-sourced ingredients into simple but delicious recipes. When she’s not cooking, writing or taking photographs, she’s probably hard at work editing a movie or television show, which she’s done professionally for the last twenty years. Matt grew up in Kent, England, and his upbringing involved a suspiciously large proportion of tinned goods. Many of those tins contained sticky toffee pudding, though, so it really wasn’t all that bad. When he’s not thinking about food, he’s running an IT consultancy in the Hudson Valley and/or scheduling a marathon of early Doctor Who episodes. Almost more than anything else, he enjoys swearing at his vegetable garden. At the very moment you’re reading this, there’s a good chance he’s chasing one or all of his chickens back into the yard.
