Hi, I’m Emily, and I tell stories for a living.
I was born and raised in New York, but in 2007, I moved to Paris, and via a series of strange events, I ended up making the French capital my permanent home.
After pursuing a Masters degree in 19th century French literature – and many years of trying – I have come to the conclusion that I will likely never be French… but I’m not really all that American anymore either.
I am the managing editor of restaurant review site Paris by Mouth, and I’m also a journalist, navigating the world of culture shock and writing about food and drink for various publications including The Wall Street Journal, the BBC, and EatingWell. For more about that, check out my weekly newsletter, Emily in France.
My blog, Tomato Kumato, is home to musings on restaurants, books, and more. Speaking of which, I am also a writer of fiction! I’m repped by the Heather Jackson Literary Agency and am currently seeking a home for my first novel.
