I’m the founder of Made by Lukas, a line of fresh veggie burgers established in 2013, editorial director of the biannual print magazine Jarry, and author of the cookbooks Bowl (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt/Rux Martin Books, March 2016), Veggie Burgers Every Which Way, and Vegetarian Entrees that Won’t Leave You Hungry (more info on the Books page).
My approach to vegetarian cuisine aims to be accessible, vegetable-centric, weeknight-friendly, a little bit unexpected, and rooted in straightforward technique and “whole foods” ingredients. But I do like dessert and drinks, though I feature those kinds of recipes much less frequently. I’ve been featured in national and local print, radio, TV, and online media—the Splendid Table, New York Times “Diner’s Journal,” Martha Rose Shulman’s New York Times “Recipes for Health” column, and more (you can find more of these pieces on the Press page). I sometimes teach cooking classes and do demonstrations. I live in Brooklyn, New York.
