Jen Altman



FFF LOVES… Jen’s deliciously fabulous food photos.

What are your staples?
Sea salt, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, almonds, espresso, Demerara sugar, Nutella - and there is always at least five kinds of cheeses in the fridge.

What are your indulgences?
Chocolate gelato and my soul is from the South, so anything deep fried.

What can’t you live without?
JIF Peanut Butter and Hellman’s Mayonnaise - yes, seriously. And goat cheese.

What is past its use-by-date?
We just moved into our new apartment, so gladly nothing quite yet.

What is your pantry craving?
I crave double stuffed Oreos with a vengeance. So I only buy them a few times a year - they are wicked dangerous.
