Wine and Ski Experts Join RFT as Editors
In an effort to continually improve our offerings to our readers, RFT Editor-in-Chief announced that realfoodtraveler.com has added two new editors: Yvette Cardozo as RFT Ski Editor and Julie Pegg as Wine Editor (Canada).
“I’m delighted that Julie and Yvette have agreed to become editors at realfoodtraveler.com.,” says Bobbie. “Both of these veteran travel writers bring a wealth of experience and expertise to their fields. Yvette is an ace skier who brings not only ski expertise, but also a great eye for photography. Julie is a true wine aficionado and has the heart of a teacher. Both editors have unique voices, and their knowledge and keen wit to their stories. We’re looking forward to some great work from them.”
Ski Editor Yvette comes with 40 years of ski experience. The veteran travel writer has skied in knee deep powder all over the world. She’s also participated in several multi-day snowmobile trips and once did an eight day dogsled trip above the Arctic Circle where she drove her own dog team. She lives and writes in the Pacific Northwest.
Look for Yvette to bring RFT readers exciting ski stories (that often include a food angle) and other stories and fabulous photos. You can check out some of Yvette’s latest ski stories:
