About Beth A. Lee
BETH A. LEE grew up on the East Coast before moving with her family to Northern California, thousands of miles away from the traditional Jewish food she was raised on. She attended the University of California, Berkeley, where she received a degree in business and later pursued a marketing career in Silicon Valley.
In 2010, Beth realized she preferred pita chips over computer chips and launched her food blog, OMG! Yummy. Through her blog, she reconnected with her love of cooking and her passion for documenting her family’s multicultural food traditions.
Beth has been featured in the New York Times and the San Jose Mercury News and has been a frequent contributor to Edible Silicon Valley. She also co-leads a popular virtual cooking group, Tasting Jerusalem, focused on Middle Eastern cuisines and ingredients.
Beth is so glad she can make a New York–style bagel in her sunlit kitchen in Northern California.
