Hi, I’m Jenn!

    I have a Bachelor of Science in Food, Nutrition and Health, and am a Registered Dietitian. I studied cooking, baking and food chemistry in a university lab, have years of experience as a professional test kitchen recipe developer and providing technical baking support to bakeries and home bakers. Want to know why your bread didn’t rise? I’ve got your back.

    I now work full-time as a blogger, putting the years of science and baking to work right here.

    On Foodess, I share the best recipes in my arsenal – tested-till-PERFECT recipes for cozy baking, easy recipes for weeknight meals and delicious globally-inspired comfort food, plus lots of science-based cooking and baking tips. Welcome!

    I live in Vancouver, Canada, with my hungry husband, our three little cupcakes, Theo, Everett and Miles, plus a floppy-eared Irish Setter (who almost makes up in cuteness what he lacks in brains).

    Want to work together?

    I welcome meaningful collaborations with the right brands. Check out my services page, or just pop a hello in my inbox at jennifer {at} foodess {dot} com!
