Michele Humes: Writer, Illustrator, Cook

I’m Michele Humes, a writer and illustrator in New York City. My subjects are food and culture.

I studied cooking at the French Culinary Institute, and earned an MA in Food Studies at NYU, where I wrote my thesis on the peculiar history of the children's menu.

Lately, I’ve been building Noodler, a hand-drawn cooking app for the iPhone.
