Laura loves food, history, and feeding others. Her blog, Mother Would Know, is filled with recipes and practical advice for home cooks. Laura had a 20-plus year career as a lawyer before turning to food-related subjects. After keeping her research skills firmly based in legal minutiae for decades, she now gets to dig around in more fascinating territory. She considers research a treasure hunt for the perfect anecdote or cooking tip and delves deep into hidden resources to unearth these gems. Her articles have appeared in the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, the Jewish Food Experience and other publications. Her first book, The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating & Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, will be published By Post Hill Press on November 21, 2017.
