Will work for cheese.  

I'm Catherine. I've worked on an organic farm in rural France, coordinated farm tours in Philly, stuffed my face as a cheesemonger in Massachusetts, and studied food in just about every way possible while getting my Masters in Food Culture and Communications at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy.

I launched and edited Edible DC magazine, part of the James Beard award-winning network of local food magazines from Edible Communities, before moving to Paris. Now, I'm a full-time freelancer working on a book. 

I write, eat, and live in Paris, but head back to my New England home whenever possible. 


Don't be shy. I love strangers. Say hello or shoot me an e-mail at cdown05 [at]
