Georgia joined Oldways early in 2010 to work with our Mediterranean Foods Alliance program, and to add her voice to our media outreach team. She enjoys finding, cooking and sharing good honest food. She likes to keep a cast iron frying pan and a sharp knife within easy reach, and is prone to taking serious detours to discover new food sources.
Georgia received a B.A. in English from Boston University and spent several decades as a writer and editor for Yankee Magazine, most recently as the food editor. She was also the editor of Changing Homes, the managing editor of The Walking Magazine and the editor of special projects for The Old Farmer’s Almanac. With a serious interest in regional foods, she has written four books on American cooking, including Cooking USA and The All-American Christmas Cookbook. When her two sons hit the ravenous teenage years, Georgia tackled the challenges of keeping good, nourishing food ever at the ready by writing How to Feed a Teenage Boy, an odyssey that led her to understand the hidden costs of processed food. She developed hundreds of healthy recipes with kid appeal, and in the process became dedicated to helping children and parents discover how to eat well for life.
