Meet the Author

Iris McCarthy is a freelance food writer and blogger in the Greater Philadelphia region who has long held a passion for writing and food culture.  Having spent almost a decade in corporate America, she left to pursue her writing career full-time and hasn’t looked back since.  Currently, Iris pens articles for the popular ‘Connoisseur’ and ‘Side Order’ columns of local upscale lifestyle publication BUCKS Life Magazine—both of which focus on telling the stories of the movers and shakers behind the region’s lively culinary scene.  In addition, she also contributes to a host of culinary magazines and catalogs. 

Iris lives in the Philadelphia suburbs, but spends much of her time eating, working and playing in the city.  When she’s not attending local food events, scoping out new ice cream spots to satiate her sweet tooth, or covering the Philly food scene, Iris can be found checking out the latest community theaters and museums.

Follow Iris as she dines around Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs on her popular food blog The Palate Princess at www.thepalateprincess.com and via Twitter @PalatePrincess.
