  • Josh Mamaclay

    Josh Mamaclay has been passionate about food since his first dive into the back of the pantry when he was 10 years old. His fascination with flavor led him to Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, where he earned his degree in culinary arts and food service management. While attending school, Josh worked in Cambridge-area restaurants before finding his true calling: creating memorable food experiences, encouraging in culinary exploration in the home kitchen and vivifying relationships with food. When he’s not busy cooking, you can find him taking his sweet time photographing food long before he actually eats it, adding to his list of awful food-related band names or strumming his ukulele.

  • Catherine Smart

    Catherine Smart is a New Hampshire native who found her love of food early, from a family that tapped maple trees, cooked, gardened and canned their own food. After graduating from the University of New Hampshire in 2007, she completed a culinary certificate program and MLA in gastronomy at Boston University. While working toward her degree, she started a personal chef business and became a regular contributor to The Boston Globe food section. She has spent the last decade as a freelance writer, food stylist and culinary teacher. At Milk Street, you'll find her teaching cooking classes and eagerly volunteering to taste-test every dessert recipe that comes out of the production kitchen.

  • Bianca Borges

    Bianca Borges, Milk Street contributing recipe developer and television cast member, was formerly the culinary director for the “Today” show. While working with Christopher Kimball on his segments, she enjoyed their easy rapport as they discussed thoughts on food and cooking. In the '80s, Bianca unwittingly launched a career in food by giving up waitressing to roll out pasta. Over time, she became pastry cook, pastry instructor, recipe developer and food stylist for the newly launched TV Food Network, as well as other positions created during this exciting period of growth within the food industry. She became food stylist for the “Today” show in 2003, working alongside the most talented chefs and innovators in food, including Chris. Following three and a half decades of food travel and work, Bianca is thrilled to find a home at Milk Street, and to have two grown daughters who still text her for cooking advice.

  • Matthew Card

    Matthew Card is Milk Street’s food editor, resident coffee geek and equipment junkie. He has 20-plus years of professional cooking, recipe development, food writing and teaching under his belt. When he’s not in the Milk Street kitchen or on the road hunting for new recipes and ideas, Matthew lives with his family in Canberra, Australia, where he burns off the countless on-the-job calories cycling.
