Katie Parla is a Rome-based food and beverage journalist, culinary guide, educator, award-winning cookbook author, and Emmy nominated television host. She has written, edited, or contributed to more than 30 books and co-hosts Gola, a podcast about Italian food culture, with Dr. Danielle Callegari.
In her latest cookbook, Food of the Italian South, Katie shares rich recipes and historical and cultural insights that encapsulate the miles of rugged beaches, sheep-dotted mountains, meditatively quiet towns, and, most important, culinary traditions unique to this precious piece of Italy.

When not writing cookbooks or filing articles for publications like Saveur, Food & Wine, Australian Gourmet Traveller, Eater, and The New York Times, you can find Katie leading virtual wine tastings, cocktail seminar, and cooking classes. Once international travel resumes, she will once again be leading culinary walking tours of Rome, the city she has called home since 2003.
