Emily Grosvenor grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on a Pennsylvania German diet rich in meat, potatoes and various incarnations of pickled produce. She studied as a Fulbright scholar in Germany before reporting on German issues for the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Washington, D.C.
Today, Emily is a magazine writer and reporter based in Oregon wine country, where she and her husband are raising two boys to love blueberries, hazelnuts, fava beans and other seasonal harvests of the Yamhill Valley. Her writing for Zester explores the connection between food and place.
A frequent contributor to Sunset, Portland Monthly and Via magazine and the "New Mommy Confessions" page of Salon.com, Emily is working on her first book, a funny memoir about failed utopian experiments.
