writer, traveler, scientist, foodie

Rebecca F Reuter

Follow me as I merge three of my passions: writing, traveling, and the ocean. When I travel, locally or globally, I see the world through the eyes of a child of immigrants, of a scientist, and of a writer. I write to connect readers with the food and people from faraway places.

I grew up in the melting pot neighborhood of East Rogers Park, Chicago, IL. I currently reside in the Green Lake neighborhood of Seattle with my husband and cat.
