Hi there, it’s Netanya here! I spend a majority of my day on my phone (shocker!) running the CookIt Instagram and working with brands, developing their social media strategy and managing their accounts. Everyday is different and I love the creativity that comes with the job!
I grew up in Seattle and, on a bit of a whim, decided to move to New York a couple months ago. I’m so glad I took the risk!
I have a never-ending travel bucket list. Next up: Thailand, Israel and South Africa. But ask me tomorrow—I’m sure I’ll have another one to add!
I volunteered at the The Pantry, a cooking school in Seattle, for five years. I learned everything I know about cooking from them!
If I had to choose a favorite cuisine, it would be Malaysian. It has all the flavors: sweet, sour, spicy, umami. My favorite Malaysian restaurant is Kedai Makan in Seattle, and I don’t care if I have to wait in line for hours.
I lived in Paris for four months when I was in college, and have always wanted to move back for a bit. Mostly, I want to eat croissants and walk by the Seine every day.
Fun fact about the CookIt Crew. By day, we’re a bunch of brand consultants, social media pros and account managers. By night, we’re cooks, the kind that think chopping an onion is meditative. So, in every issue, we’ll share some of our cooking/chef/restaurant/recipe obsessions – thinking you might be a lot like us!

Zuni Cafe ChickenOn our way out the door recently, the hostess at Zuni in San Francisco handed us type-written copies of the original recipe, bread salad and all. Best way to roast chicken ever.
