Roger Fillion developed a love for cooking when he began making "fly-off-the-plate" pancakes for his family at an early age. Today, he's a freelance writer and editor … and an accomplished home cook and bread baker, with a special interest in craft beer, wine, and olive oil. Roger also works as a social media specialist for specialty food companies. His project work includes considerable experience with foods, and his travels have taken him to wine and culinary hot spots in Italy, Spain, France, Morocco and Tunisia, as well as the Napa Valley and Oregon. Roger has spent more than two decades as a journalist writing for major media outlets such as Reuters, The Denver Post, MSNBC.com and MSN.com. At the Rocky Mountain News, he spearheaded coverage of Colorado's brewing, distilled spirits and wine industries; he also wrote about high-altitude bread baking, and staged a blind tasting by wine experts of Colorado versus California wines. In his spare time, Roger loves to hike in the mountains in Colorado, where he lives.
