Elaine Corn is a former news editor turned food editor and author. Her journalism career began with a bachelors of journalism from the University of Texas-Austin followed by jobs as a copy editor at the Dallas Morning News and Austin American-Statesman.
While in Austin, Elaine became interested in food and created the paper’s first food section, becoming its first food editor. To learn more about food, she cooked her way from Europe to Israel and onto a private yacht sailing from Greece to Turkey as its only cook.
Back in America, she headed up food sections for the Louisville Courier-Journal and Sacramento Bee. While at the Bee, the paper won awards for Best Food Section and Best Food Reporting from the Association of Food Journalists.
Corn is author of six cookbooks. “Now You’re Cooking: Everything a Beginner Needs to Know to Start Cooking Today” won Julia Child and James Beard cookbook awards. Five years ago, Elaine began her conversion from print to radio journalism. Several stories have aired nationally on NPR. Elaine continues the search for food stories in every corner of life.
