A little bit about me…

For over 10 years I have lived in Brooklyn and am busy exploring New York City. I was born in Manhattan, Kansas, and as my mother likes to say, “You started in the little apple and now live in the big apple.” Of course my first few months would have a relation to food!  Lucky for me, my time in Kansas was short, 11 months, and then my family moved to Denver, where I lived until the age of 17.  From there I moved on to Berkeley, California with a head of bright blue hair and a job at a bakery.

Linnea CovingtonNow, I  live in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, and in between freelance writing gigs and traveling as much as possible, I find time to cook up a storm–I love food!  Which is one of the main subjects I  write about, as well as  wine, cocktails, and travel. I have written for  New York Magazine’s Grub Street, Serious Eats, The Daily News, Time Out New York, Zagat, Tea: A Magazine, Today.comForbes Travel Guide, Food Republic, BlackBook Magazine, Today.com’s Bites Blog, Edible Brooklyn, and others.

In December 2008 I received my M.A. from the City University Graduate School of Journalism and am a happy freelancer. Despite my joy at working at home, I am always seeking adventure and greater stories, and love to travel the world and write about the cultures I see and the food I eat. So far I have been around India, Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, the all over the United States, Paris, Barcelona, and other pockets of Spain and Italy. No matter where I go,  I am eager to learn and grow in all experiences.
