Jenn Rice is a sought after culinary arts and travel journalist telling inventive stories within the food and beverage industry.
Originally from Laurinburg, North Carolina, Jenn left home in 2000 in pursuit of life outside of a small town, although frequents the South for work (and real deal BBQ and pimento cheese and all the good eats). Since then she's lived in Raleigh, North Carolina; spent a summer in Paris; called New York City home for six wild years; moved to Salt Lake City and Jackson Hole for love (which didn’t work out, in case you’re wondering); and is currently roaming around the globe until otherwise noted.
Cheese, homemade tortillas, bourbon, exploring exotic locales, chasing sunsets, anything sparkling, drinking coffee on a sun-drenched porch, hot sauce from all over the world, and negronis are a few of her favorite things. The million dollar question of "what's your favorite place to travel to?" Without hesitation, anywhere in Italy, Bordeaux, the South, Hawaii, Argentina and Mexico City.
Find Jenn's work on some of the best outlets out there, including Food & Wine, Vogue, Munchies, GQ, Food Network, Tasting Table, Domino, ELLE Decor and more, where she stands out in a competitive world by telling the stories of underrated chefs, nostalgic Southern bites, hip eating guides and stories you don't read every damn day.
