We’re just two women who like to eat. We want to tell you all of New Haven’s food secrets, so the next time you’re craving the best grilled cheese or the best iced coffee or the best pancakes, you will know exactly where to go. And when you do, don’t be surprised to find us there too.
Alexus is a sophomore English and African-American Studies double major from Naugatuck, Connecticut. She loves to eat and lives for the “itis” (aka that strong sleepy feeling) after a delicious and hearty meal. She loves potatoes of all kinds (in particular, though, oven fries are her forte) and appreciates living in a city so close to home (and her heart) with an abundance of pride, culture, and diversity.
Mary Claire is a Junior majoring in Ethnicity, Race, & Migration, with a concentration in food systems. She grew up in Connecticut on a steady diet of Pepe’s pizza, Long Wharf tacos, and lobster rolls from Milford’s clam shacks, but these days calls Boston home. MC loves to work on farms and to ferment things (ask her about the ten-pound jar of kimchi currently in her kitchen). She is interested in food because of the power and joy that feeding each other can bring– its ability to build community, subvert hierarchy, and celebrate our interdependence in the most delicious way.
All our sugary/savory/salty/smoky love,
Alexus & MC
