The brains behind Stirlist

Hi, I’m Amber! I’m a Registered Dietitian, Personal Chef and Nutrition Educator who loves the way food and science go together. I started Stirlist as a way for me to combine my foodie instincts, passion for nutrition and really good food. This is more than a recipe blog. Stirlist is a place for readers to learn about food, where it comes from and why it matters.

Let’s stir things up!
