Karen Hochman

Editorial Director

Karen, a New York foodie, is the founder of THE NIBBLE. She had been dining royally around town since high school. Upon receiving an MBA, it was not surprising that she went to work for the CEO of Bloomingdale’s and was sent on assignment to the gourmet housewares department. She never left the sixth floor, metaphorically speaking; although she did switch to a career in corporate marketing and advertising. It was at Citibank for credit card customers that she began to write her first culinary newsletters. A cutting-edge cook, she is thrilled to be putting out a virtual buffet of specialty foods.

Rowann Gilman

Contributing Editor

Rowann has spent more than 20 years in senior editorial positions at In-Touch Weekly, Woman’s Day Holiday Baking, Light Meals in Minutes, Jenn Air’s Creative Cooking, and other special-interest publications. She was editor-in-chief of Changing Homes and Decorating Editor of McCall’s. She is also a passionate cook and baker—but, she hastens to add, accepts invitations to enjoy others’ cooking and baking.

Ruth J. Katz

Contributing Editor, Home Zone

A contributing editor at New York Magazine and Redbook, Ruth is an expert in consumer goods and services. Her articles have appeared in The New York Times, the Daily News, Self, Woman’s Day, and many others. Ruth explains that she has a black belt in shopping. For Nibblers, she’ll be hunting “finds” in kitchen appliances and gadgets, tableware and items for entertaining. We hope no one gets hurt.

Georgi Page

Contributing Editor, Gluten Free Foods

Georgi is an integrated marketing expert who focuses on digital marketing, production and communications. She also lives a gluten-free lifestyle, and focuses on finding the best gluten-free products for THE NIBBLE.

Kris Prasad

Contributing Editor, Wine

Kris, who holds a Ph.D. in chemistry, has been a wine instructor in New York City for more than 10 years and has sailed the Seven Seas as wine lecturer for the Royal Viking Line. As the New York sectional winner of a Wines of Spain competition, he was rewarded with an all-expenses-paid trip to their great wine regions; and in non-prize-winning years pays for his own trips to the finest vineyards of Europe. A dazzling chef as well as a great palate, Kris is the director of a wine-and-food-connoisseurs’ tasting group. We consider it a good day when he brings in leftovers.

Laura Sauer

Social Media Coordinator
Prior to joining The Nibble team, Laura was a social media coordinator at, a digital advertising agency. Before then, she was an associate at Leibowitz Branding & Design.
