About

Dara_Headshot _resize2

Dara is a born and raised New Yorker: Queens is her hometown, Manhattan is her playground, and Brooklyn is where she eats and sleeps. A lot. She graduated from FIT with a degree in Advertising and Marketing Communications, but eventually realized that her passion for fashion was not as strong as her passion for bacon.

The Skinny Pig is a local NYC food blog born in 2008, covering recipes and restaurant reviews. A lot of times these things will involve bacon, cheese, or anything deep-fried. If there’s one thing Dara knows how to do, it’s be a glutton. An affinity towards unhealthy food and the ability to remain somewhat fit while doing it is no easy feat, but someone’s gotta do it. Not to mention she knows how to sling a spatula and will create the occasional beastly sandwich or bacon-laced casserole in a heartbeat. Well, while her heart is still beating at least…with all that bacon…you never know.
