Born to a Gourmet Cook mother, and a Business Owner father who traveled regularly (taking my Mom and I with), being a Road Trip Foodie was my destiny. After a long career in Fashion, writing about food and travel was a vacationing passion turned unexpectedly into a big deal, when Google discovered me. Now, Mad Girl Eats is traveling and discovering great food in interesting places and sharing it with you. Many places have been on the Food Network, Travel Channel, Bravo TV or in magazines like Bon Appetit and Food and Wine. I enjoy checking out if the food is as good as thou TV personalities and/or shows protest. Some yes…some uhh ‘what were you smoking’ disappointments. Many times, accidentally finding a place on my own that knocks my socks off is the most fun and delicious part!
I prefer to post the Best of the Best. The places that will take you off the Freeway and rock your world. Anyone can give a rotten, negative critique. I post what blows me away and leave off a restaurant that doesn’t. I pay for my own food. I have never received a complimentary meal. If I ever do, I will boldly say so. That said, I’m happy to entertain a Sponsor for travel as every penny spent comes out of my personal bank account. I am proud to be unbiased and enter into every story with integrity. I write how I speak, lyrically. It may not be grammatically correct, but it is how I would talk to my best friend. I get ‘mad crazy’ (that’s a good thing) about fantastic food, I hope you feel that.
When you spend good money to eat somewhere, isn’t it the worst when you leave feeling unsatisfied, ripped off, unpleased, and/or still hungry?! Ugh, I hate that! So I do have excitement when I’m pleased with my experience, and I want to share the goodness with you. I hope you get a chance to visit some of these places and enjoy them as much as I have.
Exciting news: I am in Partnership with Google and their new FieldTrip app, as one of their Publishers. It is wildly cool, especially if traveling to a new place. Try it, you’ll love it..it’s free, user-friendly and no bellyaching about it! It is growing as we speak.
Great food, great life.
