About Emily Monaco
Emily Monaco is a born-and-raised New Yorker based in Paris. After pursuing a Masters degree in 19th century French literature – and many years of trying – she has come to the conclusion that she will likely never be French. She has since devoted herself full-time to writing about food, drink, and culture-shock for various publications and on her blog, Tomato Kumato. You can read more of her writing via EmilyMMonaco.com. She also offers guided tours of Paris’ food, wine, and literary haunts. Emily is always on the lookout for an excellent cup of American coffee, a good beer, and fantastic cheese.
