Senior Writers

Danielle Oteri is the founder of Feast on History, which offers walks, classes, tastings and dinner parties that bring culinary history to life. A tireless sleuth of everything tasty, Danielle writes about subjects as diverse as saints, butchers, and hole-in-the-wall restaurants. She contributes stories about culinary history and Italo-centric recipes.
Rebecca Peters-Golden is a writer living in Philadelphia. When not writing fiction and poetry, she blogs about young adult books at Crunchings & Munchings and copy edits at Hermes Editing. She likes bonfires, winter beaches, minor chord harmonies, and cheese. But mostly cheese.


Contributors to Good. Food. Stories. come from a wide community of good eaters around the world:

Now that West Coast native Meredith Brown has successfully received her doctorate from the Courtauld Institute of Art, she’s free to down double espressos, sip martinis, nibble pork belly, and explore other culinary delights. When she’s not zooming from London to Paris to London to D.C. and back to London, Meredith is now happily settled in New York with her books and barbecue.
Christine Galanti is a kangaroo-cooking, $5-Polish-dinner-hunting, baby-octopus loving freelance writer in Brooklyn, NY. Find her on Twitter: @Chris_Galanti.
A transplanted New Yorker living in London, Irene Kopitov loves nothing more than a whole grilled fish and a Negroni on a sunny summer day. Since there aren’t too many of those in her new home, she is learning to love the sprawling farmers markets and afternoon pints. Born in the Ukraine and raised in Boston, Irene is a publicist specializing in design and the arts.
Max Rudy is a globe-trotting, food-loving good time waiting to happen. When not running the Interwebs for Rubbermaid (not Tupperware), he can be found planning vacations based around food and friends, eating ethnic delicacies, or being woken up by his cats for their food. Max resides in Little Poland—aka Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
Caitlin Thornton is a writer living in Los Angeles. In her so-called free time, the Chicago native rides her bike around in six-inch heels, writes about dating and relationships, and eats and drinks a little too decadently. Thornton specializes in killer goat cheese omelettes and perfectly poured gin-and-juices. Follow her on Twitter: @caitlinthornton.
