Miss Ginsu

Miss Ginsu is a nom-nom-nom de plume of Leitha Matz, who wrote about the Brooklyn food scene from 2004 to 2009.

Occasionally seen on TV cooking segments, Miss G has also written for FreshDirect, contributed to The Food52 Cookbook and has been quoted in The Washington Times and Salon.

When she's not cooking, eating or sharpening her knives, the real-life Miss Ginsu likes to travel, make silly web applications, draw web comics, take photographs, devise ways to take over the world and go to the farmers' market.
