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. I write about food, drink, and culture shock for various publications including The Wall Street Journal, Expedia, Culture: The Cheese Magazine, and Vice Munchies, as well as on my blog, Tomato Kumato. I am also a writer of fiction, and I offer guided tours of Paris’ food, wine, and literary haunts. I like making friends with folks who are passionate about what they love, whether that’s seasonal produce, fantastic cheese, or 17th century architecture.
