I’m Andrea, and I’m an engineer in San Francisco. I build buildings by day. I destroy kitchens by night.

Nerdy, to me, means being very passionate about something. I nerd out at the farmer’s market when it’s squash season. I nerd out over civil engineering stuff. I nerd out planning a trip with a super light pack. I nerd out over tupperware.

Nerdy Bites is where I come to nerd out about food – about the quality and combination of ingredients, not the manufacturing of the them. No frankenfoods here.

I started nerding out over food when I got sick in India. After a year my gut finally got better, but I found out I could not eat gluten anymore. That is why I started cooking.
