Ruthy Kirwan: Work With Me


Ruthy Kirwan, aka "Omeletta"

I’m Ruthy Kirwan, aka “Omeletta”, and I live in New York City, where I work in freelance recipe testing, development and editing. I also do freelance food writing and cooking class instruction. Interested in working with me?  You can reach me here: 

I started Percolate Kitchen in 2017 so I could share with other busy people (just like myself!) all the tips, recipes and ideas that I’ve learned so they, too, can make the most of their precious free time in the kitchen. Are you a busy person? Then you’ll LOVE the Percolate recipe newsletter.   

In my freelance career, I have been involved in a number of projects with DK/Penguin Random House Books as a recipe tester and technical editor. Together we have worked on the cookbook Ramen Fusion, which was published on October 6, 2015; The Idiot’s Guides: Autoimmune Cookbook, which was released on December 6, 2015, and Marijuana Edibles, published June 2016.  I have done work as a recipe tester and technical editor for Cabot Cheese.  I recently completed a project with new company GoodFolks Melting Cheese, developing and editing recipes for their melting cheese product. I’ve also worked with Gourmia to develop recipes for their line of pressure cookers and countertop pizza ovens.

I’m currently a staff recipe tester for food52 and have been since 2011, helping to analyze the many user-submitted recipes and help make the decision as to what will be published, both on the site and in their array of cookbooks.

Since 2011, I have worked with Rustico Cooking School as one of their freelance chef instructors.

My pride and joy is my popular weekly recipe newsletter written expressly for busy people. Each issue of the Percolate newsletter features one fresh, thoroughly tested and seasonal recipe, meal planning tip, kitchen hacks, a curated list of interested (often food-based) content from around the web, and more. You can learn more about that here. 

During my past as a food blogger, I worked with a number of different clients including Fleischmann’s Yeast, Karo Syrup, Kallari Organic Chocolate, the Consorzio del Prosciutto di Parma, Cabot Cheese, California Olives, Recipe Rehab, My Irish Jeweler, and Kitchen PLAY. I have been a featured blogger on Yummly, Buzzfeed, and Honest Cooking. 

I’m always interested in working with companies, publishers or brands, and am open to all relationships involving areas of my expertise. Feel free to contact me about rates and availability!
