Amanda Perry started cooking as a child, when her sister brought her a tiny set of wooden dishes as a souvenir from Washington, D.C. She remembers scraping the insides out of Fig Newtons to make a fig pie. (Don’t judge…she was 6.) From there, she went on to chop nuts and ice Christmas cookies at her aunt’s elbow until the wee hours of the morning to get ready for the holidays . Eventually she graduated to making real recipes all by herself. Finally, she started making up her own recipes, using her friends and family as guinea pigs. No one has died yet.
