"Naomi Fisher ran a series of cooking workshops at Smofcon in Florida in 2000. They made Key Lime Pie and Cheesecake ... the whole convention enjoyed the results ... (At a panel led by Naomi) You know you're studying under someone who understands the contribution food makes to an event when they begin the panel by saying "I think we need some cheesecake" and five minutes later you're all eating while talking." (Anne KG Murphy)

"Naomi relaxes by taking over someone else's kitchen."
