An enthusiastic eater and seasoned home cook, Daniel Schumacher is constantly on the lookout for unique stories, delicious recipes and food trucks, says Romney K. Richard, publisher and chief executive officer of Louisiana Cookin'.
Schumacher began his career as a food writer and editor in New York City working with nationally renowned teams at Food Arts and Gourmet magazine before moving down south to join the food department at Cottage Living in Birmingham, Ala.
When the magazine was shuttered in the fall of 2008, Schumacher had already fallen in love with the South, so he remained in Birmingham as a columnist for Birmingham Magazine, where he was charged with highlighting up-and-coming restaurants and finding interesting beers.
He can make a roux, has shucked his fair share of oysters, and has a deep abiding love of the trinity, according to Richard.
“Louisiana’s uplands, bayous and Gulf shores captivate me, and I look forward to searching its parishes for authentic flavors,” Schumacher says. “Sharing the stories behind a great recipe, chef or restaurant is my passion.”
“All of us at Louisiana Cookin’ hope you’ll join us in welcoming him to our team,” Richard says. “If you see him at a food event around the state, be sure to show him some Louisiana hospitality.”
