Her blog The Shiksa in the Kitchen explores the story behind the food – why we eat what we eat, how cultural foods have evolved, and how yesterday’s food can inspire us in the kitchen today. She researches the history, ethnicity, and family traditions of every dish her blog covers. Tori’s food writing has appeared on several major websites including CNN, Bon Appetit, PBS Food, Zabar’s, and The Huffington Post.
