Tammy Donroe Inman is a Boston-area writer, mother, cook, obsessive blogger, pseudo-photographer, mushroom grower, cryptogram lover, and vagabond public school teacher. She's been called other things, too.
A graduate of Tufts University and the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, Inman sharpened her knives in the test kitchen of Cook's Illustrated magazine and the PBS television show America's Test Kitchen. After that, she worked as a writer and editor for Boston Magazine. Her blog, Food on the Food, gets thousands of hits each week, and has been praised by The Boston Globe, The Chicago Tribune, Edible Boston, and Saveur.com. Inman's work has also been featured in Fine Cooking, Parents, Yankee Magazine, Tufts Magazine, Grilled, Home & Garden, Elegant Wedding, Cape Cod Life, Culinate, BlogHer, and Serious Eats. Her first cookbook, Wintersweet: Seasonal Desserts to Warm the Home, is out now by Running Press. She's currently working on a book of hilariously hack-worthy cryptograms featuring Twitter's best comics due out in 2015 (New York: Sterling).
