Beth Christian subsisted primarily on cheeseburgers and liverwurst sandwiches during childhood and refused to try most new foods. Her culinary horizons were expanded during her college days in Schenectady, New York, where she learned the joys of trying slow-simmered Italian dishes, Szechuan cuisine, and everything in between. She still can’t abide the sight of lima beans or asparagus, though.
Beth is an attorney with the Red Bank law firm of Giordano, Halleran & Ciesla who concentrates her practice in the areas of health law and non-profit law. She regularly blogs about health law developments at: http://www.njhealthcareblog.com/. Given the ever changing world of health care, it is unlikely that she’ll run out of things to blog about any time soon.
When not engaged in the practice of law in Monmouth County, Beth is busy scouting out interesting restaurants, farmer’s markets and food purveyors near her home in Burlington County, Philadelphia, and other points near and far. Beth is a frequent flyer mile and hotel points fanatic who loves to plan her next great food and travel adventure using lots of points and little cash. Her dream blog assignment would be an overnight stay in a great hotel or B&B with feather pillows and a great restaurant. If a tornado ever hit Mount Laurel, Beth would love to be swept away and deposited in the Ferry Marketplace Building in San Francisco, the weekend market in Beaune, France or the Wednesday night farmer’s market in Whitefish, Montana.
Beth’s primary dining sidekick is her husband John, but she also enjoys having her daughter Meghan, son Michael and her wonderful friends come along for the ride. Beth loves to putter in the kitchen when she has time, although the tornado mentioned above might come to mind when she is done.
