She has vast interview experience as a professional writer with many notable food moguls, including Antoni Porowski, Alton Brown, Katie Lee Biegel, and Andrew Zimmern. Olivia often attends food and beverage events and reviews restaurants (like Gordon Ramsay's Times Square restaurant). She thoroughly enjoys home cooking, and has certainly put the tips she's learned from celebrity chefs to good use.
