Welcome to the heart of stonefruit season! Arguably one of the most delicious seasons of all, but a season that calls for desserts, and treats, and the sweet smell of buttery pie crusts. We’ll cook our way though the best of the freshest fruit that you can find by first warming your palette with a freshly baked peach pie, then finishing off your night with a crunchy crumble atop your favorite berries! Happy Summer!

Born and raised in Colorado, Elise Hayashi grew up in a family where knowing how to use a paring knife was more important than riding a bicycle. This sparked her passion for food and cooking at an early age, and she enthusiastically relocated to the Bay Area to study nutrition science at UC Berkeley. Outside of the classroom, Elise helped implement childhood obesity and exercise research, and worked as a pastry assistant to fill her free time with galettes and mousses. She also broadened her experience with food by studying and cooking her way through the Mediterranean diet in Italy, and working on an organic farm in Japan. Now, she is excited to merge her gastronomic backgrounds to share her love of food with the 18 Reasons community. During the rare moments when she is not eating, Elise can be found trying out new sports, playing and listening to live music, or wandering the aisles of grocery stores and farmers' markets.
