Top Chews and News of 2017

It’s hard to believe 2017 is almost over! The year flew by for me, largely thanks to the launch of Chews and News. Since my first post in May, I’ve had some fantastic opportunities to meet amazing people in the food industry, try tons of delicious dishes and to make some fun meals of my own. I’m so grateful for the support of my family, friends, the strangers who have been gracious enough to share their time telling me the stories behind their plates, and, of course, my readers. I couldn’t do this blog without any of you, and I’m so excited to hit the ground running in 2018.

To wrap up the year, I’m looking back at some of the top Chews and News posts of 2017. Which were your favorites? What do you want to see in 2018? Comment below to let me know!

Happy New Year!
