Hello plant lovers. I’ll be traveling to a handful of cities to celebrate my second book, YumUniverse Pantry to Plate this Spring.

Details for the tour will be shaping up the next few weeks and I’ll be updating this page as they do, so check in often. I might not be hitting every city, but I’m trying to get as close to you as I can—please come out and say “hi!”


Partied—had a blast. Thank YU, Asheville!
