Cook in a Bar is also known as Katie Ferrier Gage. I’m a homesick Texan and bourbon lover currently living in Washington, DC. A recovering lobbyist, my professional energy has moved from federal appropriations to food writing and recipe development. No more high heels, power lunches, and policy memos. I spend my days in a sauce-splattered apron taking care of my new baby girl, Dottie, narrating essays for my dog, Charley, and testing recipes on my hungry husband.
I share my love of cooking and drinking with my bartender brother, Tom. Most of our conversations take place over drinks and we seem to only talk about what we will or what we did make for dinner. I created this blog, A Cook Walks Into A Bar, as an attempt to share our musings beyond the barstool.
