Work With Me
Hi, I’m Maya and I’m the Brooklyn-based author, recipe developer, photographer—and pretty much everything else—behind The Realist Food Blog. This blog features mostly healthy(ish) recipes for the busy home cook, with a few indulgent treats mixed in, because I believe life is all about balance. One constant, though, is that all of my recipes feature real ingredients. You can find my portfolio here.
One thing you probably didn’t know about me is I also have a strong background in both product marketing and advertising having worked in media and ad agencies my entire career! This means that not only are you getting someone who knows her way around a kitchen and camera, but you’re also getting a skilled marketer who is an expert in positioning your brand in a way that will best resonate with my readers.

I started this blog as a way to document my passion for cooking and creating new recipes.

Let’s make it official!
