Known around town as the Food Chick, Julia spent 14 years as the dining reviewer and culinary editor for San Antonio magazine, was the local Zagat guide editor, an adjunct writing instructor at the Culinary Institute of America in San Antonio, has co-authored a cookbook with a renowned Hill Country chef, and is the author of San Antonio Cooks, featuring recipes from 42 local chefs. And that was her second career, after years in the corporate world. Julia takes pride in being an avid home cook who seeks cooking classes wherever she travels.
