Laurie Wolf


Laurie Goldrich Wolf has been cooking professionally, writing about food and developing recipes for most of her adult life.

Laurie attended the Culinary Institute of America and worked as a chef in New York for several years. As food editor of Mademoiselle and Child Magazine, Laurie planned and executed the food and lifestyle stories with focus on creative and tasty recipes for all ages, from a 1st birthday party to a 90th birthday dinner for grandparent’s day. 

In 2008 Laurie and her family moved to Portland, Oregon and Laurie jumped head first into this awesome community, blogging for Serious Eats and working on her own book, The Portland, Oregon Chef’s Table. At work on another book along the same food lines, Laurie is writing for OPB with a focus on recipes and products, people and places that reflect Portland’s phenomenal food culture. A tough job, but someone has to do it!
