Pittsburgh's Best Resource for Food Adventures
Are you looking for a speaker to enlighten your social club’s monthly get together, your next professional convention or a yearly executive retreat? Looking for something different that leaves your group talking and excited? Something fun, but informative? Look no further! Everyone loves food, and with the local food movement bigger than ever, I can give your group a vivid foodie picture of W PA or the Pittsburgh area without their leaving their chairs. I’ve spent a lot of hours driving around Western Pennsylvania meeting the folks that have made our region’s food landscape so great. I know where to find lovingly made pierogies, beautiful artisan pasta and mysterious wild ramps and pawpaws. On top of that, I can connect the foods we eat to why we eat them. I have extensive public speaking experience – both with” live” groups and with media such as television and radio. I also have quite a bit of writing experience. This includes newspapers, magazines, newsletters and blogs. My favorite things to talk about are our food customs, local culinary traditions, hidden foodie treasures and W PA restaurants and markets, both old and new. I am not an elitist when it comes to food. I can get just as excited about my mom’s Sunshine salad ( Jello, carrots, pineapple) as I can about seared tajima beef topped with micro sprouts and chipotle aioli. I would love to tailor a presentation to your group or audience. Give me a call or email me.

A food adventure might be sleuthing out the juiciest June strawberries at a farm market, learning about gone but not forgotten area food treasures, working with a chef during a hands on cooking class or touring Pennsylvania’s artisan cheesemaker’s farms (and meeting a few cows along the way) . . or any of a zillion other fun ways to explore foodie things within a day's drive of Pittsburgh.
