Beth Wittenstein was born and raised with a love of travel, and has found food to be a huge motivating factor in deciding where to visit next (love of Italian cuisine inspired a whole semester abroad in Florence!). After graduating from the University of Michigan, Beth began expanding her culinary interests by teaching herself to bake, and has been blogging about the experience at Young Idealistic Baker ever since. When she isn’t destroying her kitchen in pursuit of mastering the art of meringues or infusing caramel with whiskey, she loves spending time outdoors, attending yoga classes and taste-testing every Thai restaurant in the Greater Boston area.
