Brooklyn - Austin - Everywhere


Paula Mason Forbes

Hello! My name is Paula Forbes, and I'm a freelance food and restaurant writer in Austin, Texas. The Austin Cookbook, my book about the restaurants and chefs of Austin, will be published by Abrams in the Spring of 2018. I cover cookbooks (including reviews!) for Food52, and I'm also a regular contributor at Travel & Eats.

I was Founding Editor of Eater Austin, Deputy Editor at Eater National, Senior Editor at Epicurious, and Managing Editor of the dearly departed cult food blog Eat Me Daily. I've reviewed cookbooks for nearly a decade, and have served as cookbook critic for Lucky Peach, Epicurious, and Eater. I've also written for Resy, The Cut, Extra Crispy, AmEx Essentials, and more. I am originally from Madison, Wisconsin, and graduated from Grinnell College in Iowa.
