About

Michele Humes self-portrait
 

Hi, I'm Michele Humes.

I'm a writer and visual artist in New York City; my subject matter is food. My first cookbook, The Noodle Soup Oracle, comes out from Running Press in spring 2019.  

I wrote and illustrated Noodler, a noodle soup inspiration tool for your smartphone. Princeton Architectural Press turned some of my digital paintings for the app into postcards; check them out here.

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.
