I'M A CONTRIBUTOR
Member since: November 20th, 2011
Janice Nieder could be the love child of Indiana Jones and Julia Child. She was a specialty food consultant for 12 years in New York, with a client list that included Tavern on the Green, Dean & Deluca and Sign of the Dove. After being bitten by the travel bug, her culinary adventures took her to over 90 countries, where she shared a smoked monkey dinner with a generous Shuar Indian family deep in the Amazon Jungle helped Ethiopian tribal woman bake injera bread on hot stones in 108 degree heat and crashed a wedding feast in Pakistan, where she was wined and dined by over 200 men ? and no women. But her real passion is working with underdeveloped countries to protect their cultural identity by preserving their traditional foods and cooking methods. Janice has received San Francisco's Community Leadership Award of Excellence for her on- going work as the Volunteer Coordinator for C.H.E.F.S. ( Conquering Homelessness Through Employment in Food Service) a program she helped develop that provides culinary and job skill training for the homeless. She is also a leading member of Bay Area Travel Writers, International Food , Wine and Travel Writers Association, San Francisco Professional Food Society and Slow Food. Her Girlfriend Getaway pieces can be found on Examiner.com as well as on the sophisticated and ever so entertaining site, Starkinsider.com. Janice recently became a staff writer for the travel department of The Global Herald, based in London, which attracts an international audience.
