Sheri Wetherell

Hello! I'm the co-founder and CEO at Foodista.com. I grew up surrounded by food on both sides of my family. My paternal grandmother owned a diner for many years, and my maternal grandmother (and mother of five daughters) was always found in the kitchen baking or whipping up garden-fresh tomato juice. My mother instilled in me the importance of healthy, wholesome eating and fed the entire family homemade soups, breads, and fresh carrot juice. Through my grandmothers, mother, and numerous travels overseas, I developed my love of food. I honed my palate and taste for travel by hopping planes with my airline pilot father, spent nearly a year studying in Italy and traveling in Greece, and taught English in Tokyo for three years. My professional background is in traditional and online marketing, where I worked for companies such as Amazon.com, Microsoft, Nordstrom, and eBay. With Foodista.com I have finally found my true passion - immersion in the world of food. I'm also the proud mama of daughter Emery.

Chicken Tagine With Preserved Lemons And Olives

Chicken is one of those foods I like to refer to as "blank slate" foods. It takes on a multitude of flavors wonderfully, as in this dish, and is equally delicious simply roasted with lemon...

I was perusing the seafood section at Uwajimaya the other day when I spied the sample table. I edged closer and saw that it was caviar. Caviar! Now that's the kind of sample table I can hang around!...

Our poor barbecues. During the warmer months they barely have a chance to cool down before we're firing them up again. Then, before you know it the weather changes and the grill sits cold and lonely...

What kind of food lover am I?! I completely missed Chinese New Year this year!  Next year I swear I'll do better (and it's on Valentine's Day, so I know I won't miss it). I had...

Molten Chocolate Cakes

What is sexier than yummy gooey chocolate? I've always loved molten chocolate cake - partly because of the oh-my-this-is-so-flippin'-good factor, as well as its neat little individual size....

I'd written before about The 44 after being inspired by a March 2008 article about the drink in Saveur. But soon after we packed it up and moved back to Seattle, so I never actually completed the...

When we were starving college students in Italy (starving because we spent all our money on weekend get-a-ways and clothes at Benetton) my friends and I would sit for hours in one of the little...

I am constantly buying fresh herbs in those expensive plastic clam shell packs, especially in the winter. And, unfortunately, I usually end up throwing most of them away because I don't use them...

No matter how good we are in the kitchen there are always new things we can learn, right? Perhaps you want to explore Southern Indian or Provincial Italian cooking, or how about the art of cheese...

Put down what you were doing, grab a glass of wine or cup of tea, take a cleansing deep breath, and have a seat. Are you with me? Good. We all need to slow it down a bit more now and then, don't we...

It's Super Bowl Sunday! Which usually means a gluttonous dose of spicy chicken wings, greasy BBQ meatballs, and cheesy nachos. If you're looking for some healthier options this year, or just want to...

I love my job. I get to talk and write about food all day. I can spend hours chopping, slicing, dicing, stirring, then carefully plating, styling, photographing my creations. But sometimes, like...

When I heard the UPS truck outside this morning I knew what it was delivering: my new copy of The Flavor Bible: The Essential Guide To Culinary Creativity, Based On The Wisdom Of America's Most...

green curry chicken salad

This is a fun twist on the classic curried chicken salad. It's brighter and lighter with the apples and lime juice, and more flavorful with the lemongrass in the curry. The chilies in the curry...

cold smoked tuna

I've started smoking. No, not cigarettes, but food. I wrote before about the electric smoker I gave Barnaby for his birthday in December and we've been going crazy throwing down various...

Photo by: Stewart I'm an omnivore, but I do have certain rules around what I consume. For example, I'll never eat anything I've ever had as a pet (although twice I inadvertently ate horse in France...

While at the Sundance Film Festival I had the pleasure of sitting down with Bethenny Frankel, celebrity chef and co-host of Chefdance, the culinary "Alt Dance" of the Festival. But she...

Food and film go hand in hand. "Date Night" for many usually means dinner and a movie. This last week at the Sundance Film Festival we saw a lot of movies (14!) and managed to squeak in a...

We Americans have an unhealthy relationship with water. Bottled water, that is. We think we're being healthy and sporty by carrying our fancy little bottles of mountain-spring-flown-in-from-France...

I love grapefruit. I love it from in the morning to in my salad at night. Throw some fresh squeezed juice in there somewhere and I'm even happier.  But, unlike oranges, I don't like to eat them...

Chicken Tagine With Couscous

Normally tagines are long-simmered dishes, but when your hungry belly can't wait, or you simply don't have the time, you can make them relatively fast. We threw this tagine together with...

About 25 years ago my family went on a glorious ski trip to the Italian Alps, our hotel room nestled at the base of the stunningly spectacular Matterhorn. We heard you could ski across the border...
