A bachelor-degree student of The Culinary Institute of America (and an incurable bookworm), Bryan Kozlowski spends most of his free time in the library somewhere between the children’s cookbooks and the folklore section. The thought of removing the long-held dichotomy between two great literary traditions led him from a traditional cooking career to one with the goal of uniting fantasy and foodmaking. Graduating valedictorian, he interned at Saveur food magazine, where he developed professional recipe writing and testing skills. After years of personal research and experimentation on the magical capabilities of the kitchen, the end result is the functional and enchanting Cook Me a Story. Bryan lives in South Florida and has written for Slate, Country Life, and other online magazines.
