Lauren Sakiyama is a freelance writer who's passionate about all things food. As a former dining room manager for an upscale country club, she's spent a lot of time in professional kitchens and is delighted to share what she's learned.
As a hospitality professional, Lauren has worked in almost every area. While managing large-scale events, like golf tournaments and car shows, she always seemed to gravitate towards the buffet table. Her obsession with food only grew when she went on to manage restaurant operations.
Luckily her hotel & restaurant management degree came with professional cooking classes. These sparked a life-long deep dive into food and food science. She continues to learn all about her favorite subject in hopes that she can help others view the kitchen as an enjoyable space.
When she's not experimenting with recipes or researching an exotic ingredient, you can find her practicing pull-ups at her nearest CrossFit gym. She can also be found on her own blog, BasicGinger.com.
