About Me

Welcome to One Hungry Pickle! I’m Leah, a writer and photographer living in Washington, DC after three years in New York. Growing up in a family of gourmands surrounded by food magazines, cookbooks and my dad’s fantastically eclectic cooking, it’s not a surprise that I write largely about food. Here at One Hungry Pickle, you’ll discover my culinary adventures, both in and out of the kitchen, whether it’s deviling eggs for an outdoor Easter-themed party, eating arepas at roadside shacks in Colombia, or attending a grilled cheese competition. Why One Hungry Pickle, you ask? During college, my obsession with the vinegary, crunchy snack intensified, so much so that my friends began referring to me simply as “pickle.” While I don’t introduce myself by that name, the sometimes sweet, sometimes salty and often spicy nature of the pickle has stuck with me.
