In addition to freelance food and travel writing for (mostly) American publications, I’m the founding editor of Paris by Mouth, a collaborative food & wine website that launched in June 2010. The Wall Street Journal recently called Paris by Mouththe definitive blog on the city’s food and wine scene.

Beyond that, I’ve written more than 600 reviews of restaurants, bars, hotels and shops as a contributor to Budget TravelBlackBookSAVEUR, Food & Wine, the BBC’s Olive magazine, the Wall Street Journal online, Frommer’s ParisGridskipper, Momondo, and the seat-pocket magazines of United, Virgin Trains, and Gulf Air. I’ve been featured in stories about Paris by CNN, Peter Greenberg’s Radio Show, Euranet Radio’s Europe Unzipped and Germany’s Stern and GEO Saison.


The food writers at Paris by Mouth now using our collective knowledge to lead tasting tours through the most exceptional shops in Paris. Our tours run almost every day of the week, our prices are affordable, and we offer the instant gratification of online booking.


I’m not a professional shutterbug, but I have quite a few photos spread between my Flickr site and the pages of the New York Times T Magazinethe Wall Street Journal, Food & Wine, The GuardianLibération, Wine Spectator, and other friendly poachers.

    Hello Meg. A note with sincere thanks for a lovely Sunday walk through Marche Aligne. By the way, we ate at FL on Wednesday night and thought it delicious. Nicholas was a lovely host, and it is located next door to our hotel!
    Food karma, n’est-ce pas? The Ficelle picardie was heavenly.
