Hi, I'm Michele Humes.

I'm a writer and visual artist in New York City; my subject matter is food. 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.

My first cookbook, The Noodle Soup Oracle, just came out! It’s a complete course in composing personalized, painterly noodle bowls. Here are some places to find it: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Indiebound
