About Jenna Rose Levy

Saving room for dessert since birth, has always had an abnormal appreciation for food. After she worked at a Connecticut farm and for bakeries on the East Coast and West, there was no turning back. Jenna earned her Master's degree in Food Studies from New York University, and she brings all her knowledge to work each day at Leite's Culinaria and, on the side, to her food blog, Sweet Hearth. On the rare occasion that she isn't doing something food-related, she can be found perfecting her Bananagrams game, planning her next globe-trotting adventure, or exploring the back roads of Boston as she trains for her first marathon.
