Jordana Rothman

Jordana Rothman is a seasoned writer and editor, with a focus on American restaurant culture and a commitment to empowering marginalized voices in the food space. In her three years as Restaurant Editor at Food & Wine she transformed the magazine's most visible package, Best New Chefs, into a pioneering, industry-standard platform for meaningful, vertical inclusion. In 2015 she co-authored her first book, Tacos: Recipes + Provocations, with chef Alex Stupak of New York's Empellón restaurants; it was nominated for a James Beard Award and three IACP cookbook awards, even though they slipped "Fat Bottomed Girls" into the recipe index.
