about me

Alexis Mersel

I have a grilled cheese in my purse

I seem to spend much of my time taking pictures of myself eating, and posting them across various social media platforms — with filters, of course. Tacos, bacon, and donuts top the list. (The man I married loves tacos just as much as I do.) My purse has been known to house many of these well-photographed foods. When I’m not stuffing my face and documenting it, I’m using the skills I learned cooking on a farm in Cork, Ireland at the Ballymaloe Cookery School.  For three awesome months at school, I got to walk around with cows and pigs and chickens and things, and pronounce “herbs” with an “h.” It was grand. Now I’m back in San Francisco, trying to cook and eat as much as humanly possible. (Thank gosh for yoga.) Why not follow me on my journey?
