About the Presenter
Jennifer Richmond has been cooking ever since she could hold a wooden spoon. Her food blog, Kitchy Cooking, appeared in 2009, when she realized she could combine her love of vintage life with cooking and writing. While she enjoys creating twists on classic savory and sweet recipes, she especially loves researching and learning the history behind some of the world’s most popular cocktails. She takes those stories and recipes and recreates the drinks for those who want to return to imbibing standards of yore, as exemplified in the classic Martini and Sazerac, for instance.
