About Jenn Press Arata

As a former red carpet reporter for Life and Style Weekly Magazine, I’ve interviewed my fair share of celebs, but it wasn’t until I started working for Food Network’s Iron Chef America and Chopped that I felt truly in awe. Watching these passionate chefs share their love on a plate made me realize this was exactly where I wanted to be.

How I became a foodie dates all the way back to my childhood. Born a Jersey girl, I grew up with an appreciation for the nearby NYC culture of cuisine, and I currently reside in Fairfield, CT, another wonderful restaurant mecca I enjoy tasting my way through.

That’s SO Jenn combines my three greatest joys in life: Eating, writing and entertaining.

My other main loves include the world’s greatest husband, taste-tester, dinner date and friend who I consider the champagne to my chocolate,


and our puppy Mojito, named after Barcelona Wine Bar’s incredible muddled mint cocktail.

Some people eat to live, but I have always lived to eat. So pull up a chair, grab a fork and join me on my multiple course journey through food.

Editor’s note: All That’s SO Jenn’s recipes are original, unless otherwise noted.
