About the Author
Theresa Wahl is the chef and owner of retro-hip hotspot Auntie Em's Kitchen in L.A.'s Eagle Rock neighborhood. In the 1990s, Terri was a singer and guitarist for the Red Aunts, an all-female punk band that toured the U.S. for a decade. Her travels inspired a love of hearty American home cooking, and when she retired from performing she started catering gigs for bands and their crews. This led to the 2002 opening of Auntie Em's Kitchen, where she quickly developed a following for her baked goods and comfort food with a punk-rock edge. Wahl lives in Eagle Rock with her two dogs and several chickens.
