Shannon Moloney, New York Contributor
Ridgewood, New York
Shannon moved to the big city from a small town in New Hampshire (population 3-4,000 max). When she’s not devouring book after book, going on hikes, or quoting movies, she is jamming to music while cooking something new—and usually messing it up completely. She loves dogs and works at a publishing house in Manhattan, conveniently located right next to a dog park. Shannon learned everything she knows about cooking from her mom—who designed her own kitchen, and then the house around it.
