Emily Berman

Emily grew up with a healthy respect for food preparations, observing and helping in the kitchen at every opportunity. After transplanting from Virginia to Chicago, she joined a CSA program for the first time, sparking her interest in locality and seasonality and rekindling the romance of her summers spent on her grandparents' farm. She started pushing herself to make everything she ate from scratch, spending hours upon hours, and sometimes days, prepping for dinner parties and holidays. Now a trained chef, her philosophy is simple — eat fresh, eat quality, and eat homemade — which is a perfect compliment to the craft beer movement.
