My name is Shulie Madnick. I am an Indian Jew, born and raised in Israel and living just outside DC for more than two decades.

I am a freelance food writer, recipe developer and a professional food and travel photographer. I am the author and photographer of www.foodwanderings.com. All content, including photos, is copyright.

I am working on my first Indo-Mediterranean cookbook and looking for a publishing house.



Alex Savakis who designed the banner for this site wrote: "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. " You can find the entire post about the process of us working together here.

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,"
