Julie McCoy
,
Although born in Chicago, Illinois, Julie McCoy lived in Munich, Germany, between the ages of six and 18. This early exposure to a different culture resulted in a lifelong passion to travel and eat well. Julie has been to Italy no less than 12 times (but who’s counting!) and has always made eating regional Italian specialties when traveling a priority. A firm believer in the slow food movement in Italy, she can tell you where the best fritto misto, mozzarella di bufala, prosciutto di Parma and spaghetti vongole can be found. Living in New York where pizza is king, she will admit she hasn’t bought a take-out pizza in nearly 10 years. Why? Because she has somewhat perfected the art of making her own version of Neapolitan pizza (including the dough) from scratch. An accomplished playwright, Julie has had three of her plays produced on Long Island. She has also written a travel memoir, Pure Form, Pure Food: In Pursuit of Great Architecture and Wonderful Meals, a detailed account of architecture and food-focused road trips she’s taken over the last 20 years with her husband and teenage children in tow. Her website www.eathappy.net contains restaurant reviews, travel and food-related articles as well as a daily dining dilemma column that tries to answer the ever popular question, “What’s for dinner?” Recently she launched http://theredhouseproject.eathappy.net/ where she focuses on trying to cook meals (without a real kitchen) in a 160 year old house she is renovating. Writing about food and the meals she’s prepared focusing primarily on Italian cuisine is an endeavor that Julie would love to share with her readers.
