Food Story

Personally and professionally, Stern’s world revolves around food and nutrition. She especially loves the fact that we don’t just eat because we’re hungry – we eat because our bodies need what food has to give us. That “something” can come in the form of nutrients and sustenance, comfort from memories or nostalgia, or as a reminder of who we are, where we come from, and what’s truly important to us.
