  • In 2017, Julia published a cookbook called "Man, You Can Cook" — initially written for her brother, the cookbook was geared toward millennial men who were looking for easy, hearty recipes.
  • She's interviewed celebrity chefs such as David Burke and covering Nick Liberato's restaurant opening.
  • The greatest meal she's ever had is a seven-course tasting menu at New York City's two Michelin-starred SAGA.


In nearly a decade covering food and drink, Julia has gained ample experience as a recipe developer through her recipe newsletter, Five Ingredient Feast, and has honed her food photography skills in the process. Julia has bylines in outlets such as Rachael Ray Every Day, Taste of Home, and various local New Jersey magazines, including Edible Jersey and New Jersey Monthly. She's worked as an undercover food critic, profiled professional chefs, and told the stories of restaurants ranging from hundred-year-old dive bars to newly-opened eateries.


Julia spent one year at Marist College before graduating from Seton Hall University with a bachelor's degree in journalism in 2016. While studying, she interned for magazines such as Edible Jersey, HGTV Magazine, and Rachael Ray Every Day.
