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.

What better way to wrap up Tomato Week than with a B.L.T.? Since all the tomato recipes this week have been vegetarian or vegan, I thought I'd end with a carnivorous bang! Bacon. Nothing goes better...

Barnaby whipped up this refreshing cocktail from the most beautiful crimson tomatoes we found at the farmer's market. They're so lovely, their color so perfect, they shine like they're in a beauty...

pasta estate

In Italy, when the first tomatoes of the season are ripe for plucking, they celebrate summer by preparing this delicious pasta dish. It's simple to make, and tastes like you've captured the...

gazpacho

Not long ago I posted a recipe for a chunky California-style gazpacho. It was such a hit that I thought I'd share with you a more traditional, but just as delicious, recipe. Allow me to take you...

We found some stunning tomatoes at the farmer's market yesterday and we immediately thought of a slew of dishes we could make with those bright crimson beauties. Our newest invention is Tomato Poke...

Polenta is one of my favorite comfort foods. Nothing beats a heaping bowl of this peasant food made rich with cream, parmesan or gorgonzola (to name a few!). But when in its cooled and solid form, it...

When I was little my mother would make us wear our bathing suits and go out on in the backyard to eat watermelon. That way she could hose off the copious quantities of juice that had run down our...

I always thought those reddish pink peppercorns were actually pepper, but I just learned they're not! In fact they come from the Baies Rose plant (schinus bush), and are much more delicate than...

I thought I was the only one who got ecstatic at the first sign of life in the garden, then my friend called yesterday to tell me her big news: she got her first strawberry! "We got our first tomato...

Whenever I go downtown to Pike Place Market I'm always sucked into the Spanish Table. There's no way around it, and I always end up parting ways with more dolares ($) than I intended. Needless to...

This year's all-women blogging convention, BlogHer, successfully wrapped up yesterday and, let me tell you, the estrogen level was fierce! I must say, it was empowering to see that many women (and a...

July 19, 2008

It was very kind and considerate of the organizers of the all-women BlogHer to invite celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito as a guest presenter. Most of the women here were purring his name Rrrrrroco,...

July 18, 2008

Today’s a quickie as I’m attending my first BlogHer Conference in San Francisco, CA. Upon arriving I felt a bit homesick for the Bay Area, fog and all. I actually had to change from my Capri pants...

In December of 1989, just after Christmas, my father and step-mother dropped me off at a little pensione in Siena, Italy where I was to meet my study-abroad group. I knew no one. We said our...

harissa

If you like hot and spicy foods then you’d love harissa, a North African chili paste most commonly found in Tunisian, Algerian, and Moroccan cuisines. It’s often used as a condiment but...

July 14, 2008

Nothing screams summer barbecue like a good old fashioned cheese burger. But since the price of beef has increased it's nice to have another tasty and satisfying alternative. Many people wrinkle...

duck curry

I love duck. And I love curry. But preparing both from scratch can be a daunting task. I recently found this quick and easy recipe for duck curry that is so good people will think you spent all...

Who ever thought of grilling lettuce? I certainly never had. I thought we only ate it in salads and on sandwiches and such. Shows how much this foodista knows! The first time I had grilled Romaine...

July 9, 2008

You've had a long hard day, haven't you? You're hungry, you've worked your tail off, and the last thing you want to do is slave over dinner. I know the feeling. It's days like...

Balsamic Roasted Vegetables

Unless you have some fancy-schmancy dinner party planned, I find it best to go to the farmer's market with nary a menu in mind, and let the recently harvested fruits and veggies dictate what I...

July 7, 2008

Have you ever gotten disapproving looks at parties for eagerly scooping up too much of the caviar? That's never happened to me per se (I'm much too sneaky to get caught), but if you have then you...

July 5, 2008

Ceviche has been an "it" food for quite awhile now, but I never tire of this South American dish in summer. If you're too hot to stand over a hot barbecue, or are just in the mood for something...

Why is it we love cupcakes so much? By "we" I mean us girls because, let's face it, they're pretty girlie. I've never heard a guy say, "Oh! Let's stop and get a half dozen cupcakes! Won't that be...

July 3, 2008

One of my favorite light summer dinners to make is refreshing gazpacho. This chilled soup is sure to quickly soothe an overly hot body. The recipes that I prefer are those without bread, making them...

June 30, 2008

I miss the days when our food was safe to eat. What is going on!? Last year it was packaged spinach, now it's tomatoes. It's said that salmonella, the big wave that's rocking the boat, is caused by...
