Tori Avey is a food writer, recipe developer and the creator of ToriAvey.com. She is the resident food history writer for PBS Food and Parade.com. She explores the story behind the food – why we eat what we eat, how the foods of different cultures have evolved and how yesterday’s recipes can inspire us in the kitchen today. Tori specializes in adapting historical and vintage recipes for the modern kitchen while telling the stories behind those recipes, allowing readers to recreate and enjoy the flavors of the past. Her blog was recently named the IACP People’s Choice Award winner for Best Culinary Website and Tori was elected to chair the IACP Food History Interest Section and Historical Cookbook Award committee.
Tori’s food writing and photography have appeared both in print and online with several major publications including PBS, Parade, CNN, Bon Appetit, Zabar’s, Williams-Sonoma, Yahoo Shine, and LA Weekly.
