"Tami is a gem in the world of fine dining. While others may know how to write about food, Tami understands what goes into the art of superb cuisine and what consumers really need to hear when it comes to giving a solid restaurant review.

Her articles are well researched, on-time for deadlines and are very current with what is happening in society. I am honored to have had her write about me and my make-up artistry, and to have worked alongside her as a fellow writer.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with Tami for the past two years. I am a publicist focusing on chefs and restaurants in the SF Bay Area, and she has written about my clients on many occasions for various media outlets. She is on my short list of writers who I can always count on to get the details right in an article. Tami is amazingly responsive and thinks quickly on her feet. She won't write about something unless it truly makes sense for a media outlet - her integrity and ethics are paramount. She also has great command of her area of expertise. Last, but not least, Tami has an engaging writing voice, which reflects her own upbeat personality. She is a true joy to work with!”
