One of the first websites that pop into our heads for what's going on in the Connecticut food scene is CTBites. Well, Amy Kundrat and Stephanie Webster, the two women behind CTBites, have released a book filled with recipes for home cooks from some of the best chefs in Fairfield County.
Their book, Fairfield County Chef's Table, features recipes from over 50 of the county’s most celebrated restaurants and showcases around 100 full-color photos featuring mouth-watering dishes, famous chefs, and lots of local flavor.
As you hopefully know, Fairfield County consists of a variety of towns and cities that each offer its own selection of delicious cuisine. This collaboration helps locals and travelers alike discover the diverse options and foodie experiences that are part of this Connecticut region.
Amy Kundrat is the executive editor of CTbites, the award-winning website devoted to chronicling great food in Connecticut, especially her home in Fairfield County. A communications specialist with a concentration in new media, Amy’s career leading external communications teams has taken her from world-class art museums, to technology start-ups, and academic institutions. She currently works in New Haven at Yale University, where she indulges in the city’s vibrant food-truck scene. She lives in the woods of northern Fairfield County with her husband.
Stephanie Webster is the editor in chief and founder of CTbites.com. Born and raised in New York City by parents who design restaurants for a living, she developed a passion for finding out-of-the-way gems during weekly trips to the depths of Chinatown and frequent trips abroad. Professionally she began her career as a photo editor in the magazine industry and then migrated to the world of new media consulting and website building during New York’s first dot-com wave. She led strategy, brand development, site architecture, and content development assignments for top consumer brands. A seven-year excursion to Seattle exposed her to a casual yet innovative approach to food that hadn’t yet made it to the East Coast. When she relocated back to Connecticut, she made it her quest to find great food and support a community of eaters that live for their next meal.
