Laura Manzano identifies as a writer, young lady, and person who likes to cook, living in Brooklyn, New York.
She recently returned from 3 months working at Agriturismo Il Baciarino in Vetulonia, Italy - hosting guests, making lunch for Andrea and Nonna Rita, and going on all of those surprise little Tuscan excursions one might imagine come up at random, and yes they actually do.
Previously she was working for Martha & Marley Spoon, Martha Stewart’s meal kit delivery service: managing the test kitchen, testing recipes, food + prop styling, doing a bunch of other stuff, and occasionally but non consistently watering the office plants.
Before that she was working in her dad’s restaurants in Florida, breaking child labor laws from the age of 13.
She hopes her work will speak for itself.
