5 Things You Didn’t Know About…

Laurie Buckle

She is our constant go-to for new playlists,  a supportive boss who is always encouraging us to think bigger and a resource for all things food. Our #CookItCrew wouldn’t exist without her and we’re so happy to share 5 things you might have not known about her today!

  1. I’m a better eater than cook — a skill I learned when I worked at Bon Appétit, and we had to go to recipe testings twice a day. Each editor at the table had to describe in detail  what they liked or didn’t like about the dish, and how to fix it. The pressure!
  2. Bananas are the bain of my existence. I live in fear of finding them in smoothies, acai bowls, fruit salads, anywhere.
  3. Of all the apps on my phone, I love Shazam the best. I’m always making a playlist.
  4. Baking isn’t a strong suit, but I make one cake very well: Wolfgang Puck’s Gateau au Chocolat. It’s from his 1981 book, Modern French Cooking for the American Kitchen (I’ve made a mess of page 221!), and it never gets old.
  5. I spent 32 years in the corporate world before I realized I wanted to be an entrepreneur. Fancy that!
