Heather is a freelance food and beverage writer with a fondness for garlic, freshly baked bread, stinky cheese, Mexican cuisine, single malt Scotch, and a good cocktail. Over the years, her liquor bottles began inching off of their shelf and onto her pantry and book shelves, taking up precious square footage. She decided it was time to start using that booze for something other than cocktails, and so started her love affair with boozy food.
Catch up with her adventures in food and drink on her blog, girlichef...where all roads lead to the kitchen.
