  • Catherine has read (nearly) every French cookbook of the last 10 years, and reviewed books by writers like Rebekah Peppler, French Guy Cooking, and Molly J. Wilkinson.
  • She has become dedicated to promoting women in the wine and spirits industry, through interviews with companies like Girl Meets Glass, Delectabulles, and Picayune Cellars.
  • In 2022, she went to 22 French towns and cities in 2 months, organizing her trip around the restaurants, vineyards, and food markets she wanted to visit in every region.


Catherine is a food and travel writer who has spent years voyaging around the world in search of new stories. As an editor for the travel and culture magazine Frenchly, she has interviewed the founders of women-only champagne clubs in Paris and amateur truffle farmers in California. She has hunted down local culinary secrets in tiny French towns and bartered for exclusive lunch reservations in all the capitals of Europe. She can probably be found somewhere in Brooklyn with a fork in one hand and a pen in the other.


Catherine has a B.A. from the Gallatin School at New York University, where she designed a program in Entertainment Business & Digital Media, focused on applying broader social and cultural contexts to the content we consume every day.
