About

A born and bred New Yorker, Laura Rebecca Kenyon moved to the Finger Lakes region more than ten years ago from NYC. She is a restaurant critic for City Newspaper and the owner and inattentive caretaker  of LauraRebeccasKitchen.com, where she tests and rates recipes written by professional chefs and home cooks.

OK, enough third person writing!

I started  this site on Blogger in 2006.  I was in my late 20s, my stepkids were little, we lived in a house that rivaled the one in The Money Pit, and making ends meet was sometimes hard.  This blog provided a creative outlet, both for cooking and writing.

Now I’m in my late-30s, my stepkids are in college and high school, we live in a sturdy house, and making ends meet is easier.  I like to think I’m  savvier too — wishful thinking, perhaps.  I *still* need a creative outlet, and I’m fortunate that my day-job(s) help  scratch that itch.

In 2013-14, I studied in a formal culinary program.  I love eating, and I love thinking and writing about food, so it made sense to me to immerse myself in that world in another way, and to expand my understanding of the culinary world.  I hope it makes me a better food writer — I think it has.

Want to say “Hi”? Email me at LauraRebeccasKitchen@gmail.com or tweet at me @LauraKenyon. I am always on the lookout for good recipes, restaurant recommendations, food finds, and food news. 

When I cook, and when I eat, I want to make it count. I hope you do, too!

    I like your “make it count” statement because it’s not the quantity but the quality.
