Amy Rosen is a James Beard nominated, award-winning freelance journalist and the Food Editor at Chatelaine magazine.
She writes regularly for publications including Food & Wine, Cooking Light, Maclean's, enRoute and The Globe and Mail and National Post newspapers, and has a food blog at www.thenationalnosh.blogspot.com.
A story that Amy wrote appears in the American anthology, the "Best Food Writing", and "Indigestion", Amy's first novel, will be released soon.
She has a recipe column in the National Post (on Wednesdays in the Arts & Life section) called "Dish"; two paragraphs and dinner is on the table!
Rosen began her career as a freelance writer and cookbook author, fresh out of school. Armed with a BA in English from McGill University, a Bachelor of Journalism from the University of King's College, and a certificate in Basic Cuisine from Le Cordon Bleu, she put her knowledge in a blender and published her first cookbook, Generation Eats. She followed that up with Cook This (Random House), and then wrote SPAtopia (Dundurn Press), based on her spa column in the Globe & Mail.
Amy has eaten her way across the country twice, for enRoute magazine, and has cooked her way from coast to coast via live TV spots. Since recently overcoming her fear of public speaking she has also given talks on topics ranging from the latest spa trends to how to build your own web site. It's gotten so that she's only comfortable speaking in front of a crowd.
