Carol Penn-Romine  Carol Penn-Romine

Los Angeles-based Carol Penn-Romine grew up on a farm in Tennessee, where she developed an early understanding of and appreciation for livestock as fellow inhabitants of the farm-and ultimately as dinner.

After working as a journalist and editor for a number of years, she decided to focus her writing on food, and to that end, earned a degree from the California School of Culinary Arts. She is particularly interested in the social and cultural aspects of food and how its production, preparation and enjoyment bring people together.

She is also a trained, credentialed tour director who conducts culinary tours in the United States and Europe through her company, Hungry Passport Culinary Adventures . At the moment, her travels are taking her all over Ireland, which is currently experiencing a culinary renaissance.
