Occupation:  Editor of LostRecipesFound.com

unnamedEver since a second grade spelling list suggested the theme for her first rhyming poem, Monica Kass Rogers been charmed by wordsmithing and story. After journalism and photography school, Monica plunged into the publishing industry, working for local, national,  international magazines and newspapers as a full time editor, feature writer and columnist.  Most of the stories she’s written lately have been about food, and culinary history. Figuring that everybody has a favorite recipe they loved and lost, and most people have stories to go with them, Monica launched a column for the Chicago Tribune called Lost Recipes Found. That became her food blog of the same name.  Posts at the site feature recipes recreated in answer to reader requests, and or vintage recipe reboots Monica comes up with on her own playing off a wide variety of themes, from “Love from the Lunchroom” (cafeteria recipes) to “Gone But Not Forgotten” (recipes from long closed restaurants and department store tea rooms.)

Basically Loves: Monica loves to cook, take pictures, read and hang out with her four kids. She’s has a letterpress printing hobby and with her husband Todd, she hosts The Pig & Weasel  Evanston’s finest arts-incubator and house concert series.
