About

Arkansas Foodies was launched in the fall of 2010 as a celebration of the food and culture of the great state of Arkansas.  A mixture of recipes, restaurant reviews, and food festival write-ups, Arkansas Foodies is a labor of love owned and maintained by Michael and Jess.  Named as one of the best food blogs in the state in 2011 and 2012 by the Arkansas Times, we’ve been proud to represent Arkansas food and all the great folks who cook, sell, serve, write about and eat it.  Arkansas Foodies was also voted runner-up “Best Blog” in the 2011 and 2012 Arkansas Times Readers’ Choice Poll, Best Blog in Little Rock in the 2012 About.com readers’ poll, and has been featured on such blogs as Stardust (run by Tito’s Handmade Vodka), New Belgium Brewing’s “Foodie Fridays” and we’re primary contributors to the Arkansas Times’ Eat Arkansas Blog as well as doing some restaurant reviews for their print edition. In 2014, Michael was named editor of Arkansas Food and Farm magazine, an ambitious project that combines information and feature stories about the farmers, artisans, and chefs that grow and produce the local products that make Arkansas such a special place.

Michael’s work has also appeared in Sync Weekly magazine, Arkansas Life magazine, and Arkansauce, the UALR journal of Arkansas foodways. In 2013, he joined Mary Twedt’s Arkansas Cooks radio program for a short stint as a correspondent. Further radio endeavors include a frequent guest spot on The Alice Stewart Show, though he can’t really condone most of what goes on with talk radio.
