Food & Beverage

Below is a collection of articles related to food including roundups, features, and profiles. I travel frequently and explore my own city often allowing me to connect with different people in the food and beverage space. If you’re looking for a writer who can write expertly about food, or the people behind it, I can be reached at lia@liapicard.com.
