Courtney Tsitouris, senior copywriter at Eric Mower + Associates (previously Strata-G Communications) and food blogger, is speaking on a panel about the state of the Cincinnati food scene on Thursday, Nov. 15, as part of a new series from the Clifton Cultural Arts Center celebrating the city’s unique treasures.
Joining Tsitouris on “Celebrating Cincinnati Women in Food” are notable local food experts Kate Cook of Carriage House Farms; Marilyn Harris, author, host of “Cooking with Marilyn” and Cincinnati Enquirer columnist; Meredith Trombly of Fresh Table in Findlay Market; and Sharon Butler, Bobonnerie. Cincinnati Magazine’s Dining Editor Donna Covrett will moderate.
Tsitouris, who writes ad copy at EMA by day, is the author behind the popular food blog Epi-Ventures.com, which she started in 2010 while at the Midwest Culinary Institute. She is a featured partner of the Cincinnati.com blog network, and her work appears in the online Cincinnati magazine SoapBox Media and on the jumbotron screens in downtown’s Fountain Square. Last year, she published her first cookbook "Todd Kelly’s Orchids at Palm Court", with design by EMA colleague Kelly Pennington. Plans for a second cookbook are underway.
Tsitouris is also co-producer of the original video series “Cincinnati Deconstructed,” which brings the Cincinnati food scene to life through interviews and behind-the-scenes footage. She works with EMA colleagues to shoot, edit, write and produce the short video profiles of the people behind the food and dining scene in Cincinnati.
