Fueled by insatiable curiosity to uncover every food-related spot and meet every foodie in Seattle, Keren Brown began by enrolling in cooking classes. She would spend mornings in class, afternoons scouring the shelves of the city’s cookware shops and specialty grocers or judging food contests, and evenings in restaurants, all the while chronicling her journey on her blog, FranticFoodie.com.
Driven by relentless energy, she created the Seattle FoodBlogger Events—monthly meet-ups for local food bloggers—and launched a series of networking and educational events, known as Foodportunity, for the entire Seattle food community, bringing together writers, culinary industry professionals, restaurateurs, food companies and food-passionate people.
In addition to her own blog she writes for SeattlePi.com and MyNorthwest.com. Keren Brown was named “Doer of the Week” by MarthaStewart.com and featured numerous publications such as Puget Sound Business Journal, Portland Business Journal, SeattleTimes and Sunset Magazine.
Keren Brown is the author of “The Food Lovers’ Guide to Seattle” (Globe Pequot Press), a guide to all the best restaurants, bakeries, and specialty shops in Seattle.
