Meet the Author

Lauren McCutcheon was born in, grew up outside of, and currently lives in Philadelphia. She loves it here. She is an editor at Philadelphia magazine, author of A Virgin’s Guide to Everything (Warner Books, 2005) and The Right Way (David & Charles, 2006), former restaurant critic for Philadelphia Weekly, and former editor for the Philadelphia site of www.citysearch.com. Some of her favorite things to do in the city include breakfast at Parc on Rittenhouse Square (or, if in a rush, a cappuccino at La Colombe), visit the Perelman's design exhibits at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, shop at Vagabond in Old City, do yoga at Practice in Queen Village, and consume oysters and Cava at the Oyster House. In that order.

Carrie Havranek writes about travel, food, and culture from her home in Easton, PA, and uses the marble rolling pin from her Pennsylvania Dutch great aunt nearly every day.
