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.

Sorry music lovers, I'm not talking about the band, I'm talking about the capsicum. Although both do add spice to your life. You don't have to be a "hot head" (a.k.a. lover of spicy foods) to...

My new favorite thing -thanks to my friend Tracy who made it for us the other night- is herb yogurt. Made with multiple fresh herbs one bite is like a mouthful of your lovely herb garden (minus the...

If I were to live my life as a confection I'd definitely choose to be a cupcake. They're cute, everybody loves them, and because they're the perfect size you never hear, "Ugh, I really shouldn't...

My good friend, Amy (food lover, caterer, organic gardener, food show radio producer, and all around girl about town), gave me this recipe for a Turkish garbanzo (aka chick pea) salad and I just had...

I've said it before, salmon runs through our blood here in the Pacific Northwest. If there's one food that sums up our culture I'm certain it would be salmon. In our home we always have...

I hated beets as a kid. I only liked my grandma's pickled beets because they were sweet. But as an adult I can't get enough of them. And what's easier than tossing a bunch in the oven to roast? Mix...

I love fennel. It grows like a weed in your garden and tastes deliciously sweet and licoricey. It's wonderfully fragrant and adds that certain missing something to many dishes. You know when you're...

My mother's friend brought the seeds of these beautiful runner beans back from Italy sometime last year, and they were finally harvested. I have to admit, I kinda like the idea of her secreting...

I really want to like healthy bread. Especially the types that I refer to as "bird seed" bread: spelt, sprouted wheat, uber-whole grain packed with nuts and seeds and everything short of wood pulp....

Is there a better gift that a food writer could give us food lovers than a year-long diary of what he (or she) cooks and eats? I think not. But that is precisely what British writer, Nigel Slater,...

Peaches, peaches, peaches! They're everywhere right now, and that makes me feel downright peachy (sorry, I couldn't resist). We recently purchased a flat of beautiful yellow peaches, and every day...

Heirloom tomatoes are worth their often-expensive price. Deep red, orange, yellow, green, black (dark purple red), these tomatoes always make the most beautiful arrangement. The best thing about...

Do you ever have a craving for something, but you just can't seem to put your taste bud on it? Not sure if you want something salty, sweet, sour or spicy? Maybe you want it all! If so, then I...

I love tea. Actually, I think I prefer it to coffee, but don't tell my fellow Seattleites that or I'll be hung from the nearest Starbuck's. I used to be able to find my favorite teas from Murchie's...

You all have been enjoying the limoncello recipe so much I thought I'd stay on the Italian train and give you another tasty treat. Bomboloni are the Italian version of doughnuts - without the holes...

limoncello

When life throws you lemons make limoncello! The first time I had limoncello (lee-mohn-CHEH-loh) was years ago in Sorrento, a charming sea town on the Amalfi Coast in Italy known for it’s...

August 18, 2008

Oh, we dined with such guiltless pleasure last night at La Spiga's Ferragosto event. It was a sweltering hot evening (by Seattle's standards), so we were thankful for the big round table on the airy...

Grilled Tuna With Mango Salsa

I don't know what's better in this dish: the fresh tuna or the mango salsa? The fresh-from-the-sea albacore tuna loin we purchased stayed so moist and tender during grilling, often times a...

Sure, you can buy crackers, but what fun is there in that? You have to get in the car, waste expensive gas getting to the store, find parking, decide among the fifty million brands of mass-produced...

Photo courtesy of LookatLao In 1989 I studied in the beautiful medieval Tuscan town of Siena, Italy. I quickly fell in love with everything Italian, especially the food and wine. Fluffy gnocchi as...

I don't usually review products, and generally I'm not one to get suckered into kitchen gadgets, but this product is worth the touting. I've seen Jamie use his Flavour Shaker on his show Jamie At...

I was asked the other night how long you are supposed to cook crab. Good question! I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and have cooked and cleaned plenty of crab, yet I had never considered that it...

Croquettes, or in Spanish croquetas, are small, lightly breaded fritters that are deep fried. A common variety in Spain is the potato and ham croquette, or croquetas de patatas y jamon. Fluffy and...
