About Me

My name is Shulie Madnick. I am a food and travel writer, speaker, cooking teacher and photographer. I focus on the food culture and history of Israel and India in my writings, food and travel stories, recipe writing, speaking engagements, and cooking demonstrations. My writing is also inspired by the foods from my travels around the world. 

My podcast "Beyond the Bagel" is now LIVE! Don't forget to subscribe to get notifications of future episodes and news.

I was born in Israel to Indian Jewish parents from Mumbai and I now live just outside DC. 

My articles and photographs were published in The Washington Post Food Section among other publications. A large part of my Jewish India photography collection is archived at the Museum of Jewish People (Beit Hatfutzot) library in Tel Aviv.

I am a member of the Association of Food Journalists (AFJ).

"Her photos of food with a richness that it verges on the profane include textural backgrounds, muted colors with pops of bright hues and unusual points of view. "

A recent thank-you note from a private organization video webinar talk I gave (60 people) on Indian Jewish food and culture:

"Shulie, Thank you so much for joining us on our Webinar. Your stories, experiences and passion were inspiring and eye-opening to all of our participants, including myself! We really appreciate you taking the time to share with us. Your presentation and dialogue really enhanced the call and helped to elevate the participants knowledge and excitement for the upcoming mission. Hope to stay in touch! All the best,"
