Bobbi Marstellar - Bob Vivant

Like Julia Child, I believe in 'Everything in moderation, including moderation.' My cooking is veggie centric with meat as condiment and largely driven by what’s in our garden. I love to layer colors, textures, and flavors: Roasted beets + crispy sweet onions + horseradish creme fraiche + fresh chervil.

Bobbi is the brains behind Bob Vivant, a playfully titled blog (playing on “Bon Vivant”) that is home to all of her recipes, travel memories, stories, etc. With childhood beginnings punctuated by SpaghettiOs and Pop-tarts, Bobbi, a motivated dreamer, actively took it upon herself to start hitting the books (cookbooks), perusing the farmers market, and embarking on her own ambitious culinary adventures. Always keeping it sophisticated and seasonal, Bobbi not only cooks entirely from scratch but, equally if not more importantly, cooks straight from the heart, something that is evident in her writing. Each recipe is served with a meaningful anecdote that lets you get know the chef, whether it be related to an amusing childhood recollection or her most recent dietary adventure with her husband, Greg. You’ll be so drawn in by Bobbi’s storytelling that you’ll almost feel like you’re cooking together. As for the food, it all looks so good you’ll want to just bite it right out of the computer screen. You can also check out Bobbi’s favorite food quotes, which is pretty darn cool.
