The scarves have come out, riding boots are back, Halloween candy is beginning to line grocery store shelves, and one thing is for sure: fall is officially under way. For all of us at Food52, that means it's time to get excited about apple season (we have a whole collection on Provisions dedicated to it, after all).
As the resident pastry chef at Food52, Rachel hails all the way from Northern California, where she was born and raised off fresh produce from the local farmers market. After graduating from Occidental College, she headed to New York to start her career in publishing. After five years in the magazine biz -- Martha Stewart and Architectural Digest included -- she decided it was time to start living the dream and enrolled in the pastry program at the French Culinary Institute. These days she can be found whipping up edible creations for the Provisions product pages or tracking down the new and unique for the next collection. She currently lives in Westchester with her husband and her dog Samantha.
