Cook: Share : Connect
I am a multimedia storyteller and creator of storycooking.com. My work revolves around media and food literacy. I am Media Chef at Dali Mamma in Albany, NY.
I use food as a starting point for conversations. I am self taught cook, artist, educator, and member of Chefs Consortium. I received my MFA in Electronic Arts from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. My journey started when I realized food and cameras are at the center of my life and art. Food and cameras are the tools I use to communicate and build interpersonal connections and community. I live in Troy, New York with my husband and our two children and dog. I was born in Brazil and spent most of my childhood weekends at my grandparents’ small farm. I worked for over a decade for newspapers.
There was a story behind everything we did with our food – from how it was harvested, cooked, and shared.
StoryCooking was started by Ellie and writer Amy Halloran
This site is a place to capture reflections on the roles of food in our lives, the impact of food on community, and explore people’s relationships with cooking and eating.
