Cambria has spent the last 12 years helping people feel confident in their kitchen and at home in their home. Before joining Simply Recipes in 2019, she was a longtime editor and writer for Apartment Therapy and Kitchn. As the founding Design and Lifestyle Editor for Kitchn, she directed all kitchen design, commerce, and lifestyle content, including weekly kitchen tours and interviews with artisan food makers and producers.
She has coached and collaborated with dozens of writers and photographers in the food and lifestyle space over the years, and has also written hundreds of feature articles on kitchen design styles and trends, storage and organization, shopping, cleaning, entertaining, and all manner of advice on how to have a joyful (and organized and functional and pretty!) life at home in your kitchen.
Cambria's best piece of cooking advice: A dish isn't finished until you've tasted and seasoned it right at the end. If a dish tastes bland, it's not that it's a bad recipe or you didn't make it right; it might be that those flavors are all there, they just need a bit of coaxing to show their true colors!
“Season to taste” means understanding the power of a bit of additional salt, or a hit of acid like lemon juice, or a spoonful of some savory note like miso or soy sauce added at the very end of cooking to balance a dish and bring it to life.
