Enthusiastic eater and seasoned home cook Daniel Schumacher is constantly on the lookout for unique stories, delicious recipes and taco trucks. After an introduction to journalism at The College of William & Mary, he began his career as a food writer and editor in New York City. There he worked with nationally reknowned teams at Food Arts and the late Gourmet magazine.

In 2007 Daniel joined the food department at Cottage Living in Birmingham, Alabama and fell in love with the South. When the magazine was shuttered in the fall of 2008 he remained in Birmingham as a columnist for Birmingham Magazine, where he was charged with highlighting up-and-coming restaurants and finding interesting beers.

Outside of writing and editing, Daniel has worked with bestselling author Kim Sunee on The Floating Island Writers’ Workshop, a travelling series of memoir workshops. In 2006 he launched The Gourmetro and worked with Curbed Networks on their popular EaterNY blog.

Daniel can make a roux, has shucked his fair share of oysters, and has a deep abiding love of cast iron. Louisiana’s uplands, bayous and Gulf shores captivate him and he looks forward to searching its parishes for their authentic flavors. Sharing the stories behind a great recipe, chef, or restaurant is his passion.


This is all spelled out in more detail on Daniel’s resume.
