Usually hungry, always interested
A Seattle native, Julia Wayne writes about local food and dining destinations. She has a tendency to dive down the rabbit hole in pursuit of a good story, and always comes out with something worth telling.
When she's not sitting down to explore a new menu or reading up on food history, she can be found learning the delicate art of cooking dosa, practicing her dumpling folding techniques, or seeking out the best method to make a fluffy, flavorful tortilla.
A long time bartender, she has switched sides of the stick, though she continues the noble pursuit of getting to the bottom of what's in the glass. Local beer and spirits are particular passions, and getting caught up in the vines while learning about wine-growing traditions is her idea of a perfect day.
Her work has appeared in Sip Northwest, Munchies, Cidercraft, AllRecipes Dish, Eater Seattle, Seattle magazine, Edible Seattle, The Stranger, Seattle Weekly, Stackedd Magazine, Sportspress Northwest, Inside Right Wrist, and more.
