Hello and welcome to my blog,
I am a life-long resident of Massachusetts, a licensed attorney, and have been involved in food and wine writing for over seven years. Beside my food, wine, saké & spirits blog, The Passionate Foodie, I also have written a food & wine column for the Stoneham Sun newspaper. In addition, I have been published in other periodicals, including the Boston Scene magazine, North End Scene magazine, and the Valley Patriot newspaper. Plus, I have been a freelance contributor to the Medford Patch and Melrose Patch.
--I am a Certified Spanish Wine Educator, having also visited Spain three times, including the Canary Islands, Sherry region, Madrid, Barcelona, San Sebastian, Rioja region, Priorat region and more.
--I am a Certified Sake Professional and currently teach sake education classes, hold sake tastings and dinners, and am available for hire for all types of sake events.
--I am a Certified Wine Location Specialist, which concentrates on the Champagne and Port regions, especially on terroir issues, and I have visited the Champagne region. I am capable of leading classes, tastings, dinners and more on Champagne and Port.
I am also on the Board of Directors of Drink Local Wine, Inc., an organization dedicated to promoting lesser known and less appreciated wine regions in North America. It holds an annual conference in a different wine region as well as a Regional Wine Week in October.
