About the Author

Judith RontalJudith Rontal hails from wintry Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she grew up in a family that always managed to eat dinner together. She’s continued that connection between food, family and culture in her blog, Aluminum Foiled Kitchen, and in her daily life in DC. When not in the kitchen working on a new recipe, you can find Judith sweating it out at yoga or on the Rock Creek Park trails. Follow her food adventures on Twitter and Instagram.
