Support Independent Journalism

Your help will allow me to create the type of content the industry desperately needs right now.

Thank you to everyone who has supported my work in the past and present. I truly appreciate it. 

I also appreciate your support of my latest project, The Awakening, my Substack newsletter covering the culinary industry as well as unique food and beverage topics. Because I’ve been interviewing so many industry notables with the LIVE! Culinary Series for almost a year, there’s been no shortage of topics. 

Thus far, I’ve chatted with people coast to coast, discussing issues ranging from restaurants expanding their services to include second concepts like virtual markets and bakeries to how addressing diversity issues within the industry will make the industry a better place in the long run. 

I’ve connected with so many people as a result, developing a deeper respect for the industry I have long covered. While they’re the ones who are coming up with these fantastic food and beverage concepts, they want us to know that what they’re serving goes far beyond the surface. 

I enjoy covering these stories, which is why I’m launching a new podcast this spring. It will complement the work I’m already doing on IG and Substack, which, of course, streamlines all my projects. I will be revealing more about the podcast as the launch date approaches, and l look forward to your support there as well. 

As food and beverage coverage continues to disappear in mainstream media, this call is more important than ever. Locally and nationally, the people who write about the restaurant industry have been moving on to other things.

Please sign up for The Awakening to keep up with all the goings-on. And even better, SUBSCRIBE to it to support independent journalism that brings with it a sense of dedication, passion, style, and flavor you won’t get elsewhere. 

You’ll love it!
