Featured journalist: Rachel Tepper
Tuesday's featured journalist is none other than Rachel Tepper, Associate Food Editor at Yahoo! Shine. Previously with The Huffington Post, NBC News and Washingtonian Magazine, her writing has also appeared in The Washington Post, Edible D.C., Serious Eats, Washington City Paper, The Forward and other publications. Understandably, she's also a foodie who claims, "I've never met dumpling I didn't like." She adds that there are only a few things that she won’t eat, and these include cream cheese slathered too heavily and celery.
Be sure to check out her portfolio, where headlines range from the whimsical ("Call me coffee challenged") to the nostalgic ("Tales of long-ago meals help man regain his appetite after an illness") to the sobering ("Local Fishers Deliver Invasive Potomac River Menace To Legendary Manhattan Eatery"). Oh, and for you PR folks out there with culinary stories, Tepper prefers to be pitched by email!
