About Mother Linda and Mother Linda's
After the birth of my
first son, my friends suddenly started calling me "Mother Linda," a moniker I
quickly grew to love because it somehow, however symbolically, tied me to Mother
Earth and her wisdom. So, when I started writing cookbooks, I adopted that
moniker as my publishing persona, created the logo you see above, and I have
decided to keep both the name and logo for my online identity.
I now have three sons and
divide my time between taking care of my family's health by foraging for
nutrient-dense food and researching and writing about food, travel and tourism
trends. I have thoroughly enjoyed the process of becoming an online
entrepreneur--which allows me to hear from and communicate with people around
As a food and travel
professional, over the years I have had the chance to broaden my culinary and
cultural interests. In April 2003, I earned the designation of Certified
Culinary Professional (CCP) and in May 2004, I graduated from George Washington
University School of Business with a master's in tourism administration (MTA), which was sadly, the week that the magazine I had worked at for almost two decades, laid off 90% of it staff. I decided to pursue my PhD at Purdue University in tourism and hospitality and graduated in 2009. I've been a professor in Philsince then.
In these pages, you will
find that I have a special affinity for Eastern Europe--especially Bulgaria and
Croatia--and nourishing back-to-the-basics food. The goal of this Web site is to
share some of my interests with you.
