She writes The Healthy Cook recipe page for CSPI’s monthly publication, Nutrition Action, and is the publication’s culinary editor. Kate has lived in or traveled to (and, of course, has eaten in) more than 30 countries. Her deep understanding of so many cuisines helps explain why her dishes are intensely flavored without the need for excess salt. Kate has taught healthy cooking at the Capital Area Food Bank in Washington, and was the keynote speaker at the Food Bank’s TedX Food event. She was also a featured speaker at the 2014 Hunger Summit, and has been featured in the Washington Post.
