About Alana Chernila
Alana Chernila is a cookbook author and blogger. Her two books, The Homemade Pantry and The Homemade Kitchen, celebrate her guiding principles in the kitchen, which include these phrases she keeps taped to her fridge: “Start where you are. Feed yourself. Do your best, and then let go. Be helpful. Slow down. Don’t be afraid of food.”
Alana sees cooking as an opportunity to live consciously, and her books exalt the beautiful imperfections of food made at home.
