As Senior Food Editor, Jennifer Armentrout makes sure that the magazine's recipes produce great results every time. She began her professional career by working her way through the ranks in several Washington, DC-area restaurant kitchens. After graduating with High Honors from the Culinary Institute of America, Jennifer was asked to stay on at the CIA as an editor and writer in the Books department, where she worked on seven of the Institute's titles, including its flagship cooking text, The Professional Chef. She initially joined the Fine Cooking staff as an assistant editor, but when the original test kitchen director retired, Jennifer jumped at the chance to get back in the kitchen. She's been heading up the Test Kitchen team since 2001. She lives with her husband, young son, and two hyperactive Boston Terriers in Northwestern Connecticut.
