Marcella Kriebel is a Washington, DC-based food illustrator, muralist and cookbook author. Her artwork and two published cookbooks, Mi Comida Latina and Comida Cubana a Cuban Culinary Journey, explore culture through the lens of food and celebrate recipes learned through her experiences traveling and cooking with people in their homes.  Like many, Marcella believes that food is a bridge into the culture, and is ultimately what bonds people around the world.

Marcella’s work has been featured on NPR, The Washington Post and national blogs including Food52 and Kriebel holds a BA in Studio Art and Cultural Anthropology. An internship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum brought Marcella to the District. Today, she maintains a retail studio in Washington DC and sells her work primarily online and out of her retail studio.

Why postcards?

When you choose PeachDish, you support artists! We strive to connect people with food through good food experiences, and while we recognize that these experiences happen primarily in the kitchen, we challenged ourselves to stretch that connection across new and unexpected mediums. These postcards offer a brilliant way to showcase foods and tradition while also shining a light onto remarkable artists around the nation, and we encourage you to share these special postcards with friends and strangers to spread the love and the good food movement!
