hi! I’m Christine, and this is WRY TOAST.
Consider WRY your guide to easy, everyday cooking – Healthy, seasonal, straight-forward recipes are what you’ll find here, all of them flexible and attainable for your everyday life.
As a New York based writer, photographer, and self-taught cook, I know firsthand how busy life can get and how difficult cooking can seem. But with a touch of patience, quality ingredients, and a healthy dose of humor, great meals can easily be integrated into any hectic schedule, and I’m here to show you how. So whether you need dinner for two, a full-blown feast, or some cool creative apps, WRY has it covered – You buy the ingredients, I’ll plan the meal, and together we’ll make something amazing.
Outside of the kitchen my love of food continues, with a writing career covering the New York restaurant scene.
Whether I’m exploring the latest must-eat venue, discovering hole-in-the-wall gems, or chowing down at my favorite local spots, dining in New York is always exciting, fun, and just a little bit tipsy. Get in on the action by following my culinary escapades — and more! — under NYC, which is a really creative title I thought about for weeks.
I’m married to a guy named Dave, and he’s pretty cool. We got engaged in Paris, honeymooned in Tahiti, and live in the West Village, but life isn’t as terrible as it seems. I’m also an amateur gardener, spending the summer months tending to an herb + tomato garden on my terrace – It’s a little slice of heaven, and it’s inspired so many of the seasonal recipes I hope you’ll come to enjoy.
A bit more:
