I've never been terribly good at the whole internet alias/handle thing, so when I decided to start my own foodblog in early 2007, I went with the nickname my mother gave me when I was little (and has been using ever since).
Queenie Takes Manhattan is dedicated to exploring all aspects of the food world: dining (fine and not-so-fine), cooking and recipe writing, sourcing ingredients, entertaining, great tabletop & kitchen design, and travel.
I've lived in Manhattan since graduating from Bryn Mawr (with a degree in Religious Studies) in 2001, so my writing tends to focus on New York's food scene, but I like to think I travel as much or more than the average bear. Since Queenie kicked off, we've visited London, Paris, India, Manchester, Edinburgh, Napa, Ohio, Sonoma & San Francisco, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Chicago, Maine, and Austin together.
So sit back, click away, and enjoy - and please feel free to get in touch if there's something you'd like to see me blog. I'm always up for an adventure.
Meg, a.k.a Queenie
