About Iris Mansour
Why, it's a pleasure to virtually meet you. Hello, I'm Iris an anglo-Israeli and new New Yorker who loves to cook for more people than fit into my apartment — especially on Friday. The longer version goes a little something like this... I grew up in London — hence my penchant for sarcasm, tea and Sherlock. My folks are Israeli — so I’ve been struggling with a Bisli addiction for years. I lived in Paris for two magical years as a journalist — I covered elections, riots, fashion week and all that good stuff. But my hardest assignment was the cafes and bars chapter for Time Out. I got into journalism to make the world a better place. My work is done. I moved to NYC two years ago and I feel totally at home. Somehow the whole British-Israeli-Euro thing makes sense.
