Today you’ll encounter a new byline on Bites, as Nicki Wood joins us as a regular contributor. Of course, Nicki’s byline isn’t new to food journalism. She was a longtime food critic for the Nashville Banner (may it rest in peace) and has contributed to the Scene and Fine Cooking, among other publications.
A newly minted Certified Culinary Professional, Nicki has been editing cookbooks for a decade, and she is the dogged kitchen adventurer behind the blog Tupperware Avalanche, where she chronicles the culinary travails of an Anglophilic, carb-dodging bicycling fanatic who likes to pickle things, bake stuff and explore the aisles at K & S Market. Bites readers may just know her as “Fluffernutter.”
Fluffernutter’s arrival is part of the beefed-up food coverage you can expect to see at the Scene in coming weeks. We’re also preparing to launch a weekly dining newsletter, full of local news, foods, events and features to help you plan your culinary outings across Nashville. When that’s ready, we’ll let you know where and how to sign up.
In the meantime, a hearty Bites welcome to Nicki.
