About Ame Gilbert

Artist, food scholar and cook. Sometimes I teach cooking or art or a combination. I also write poems and essays about food, and create theme based menu's for several NYC salons. What I love is pushing meals into the realm of ideas while still keeping them delicious. I like to think of cooking and eating as a form of storytelling, and I love sharing a good tale. Check out my blog: foodportraits.blogspot.com Along with Deena, who is in an artist, stylist and event planner putting an overwhelming preoccupation with food and cooking to practical good use, we run Communal Table, which brings art, ideas, activism and food right to the table. We sit down with writers, performers, artists, scientists, chefs and friends to talk and listen and to share wonderful meals and experiences .
