Christy may not be best described as a chef so much as a professor of food. Her current work at Harvey Mudd University has her studying the technology involved in the taste of water.

Before her academic work, Christy worked for Kraft Foods, setting up a molecular biology lab to assist the executive chef in developing new products.

Christy is also something of a Jell-O historian, writing an interesting feature for Slate magazine on how  Jell-O and Mormonism have crossed paths over time.

Christy’s food storage is comprised mostly of flour, sugar, and chocolate.
