Journalist Rebekah Denn is a regular contributor to The Seattle Times, The Washington Post, The Christian Science Monitor and other publications. Her work includes everything from investigative reporting to restaurant criticism (sometimes both at once.) She curated the 2017 “Edible City” exhibit on Seattle’s food history for the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle, as well as writing the accompanying book, and is editor of the Sound Consumer, a mission-driven newspaper on sustainable food and agriculture published by the nation's largest food co-op. She was also an editorial contributor to Modernist Cuisine, which has been called the most astonishing cookbook of our time, and a writer on the 2017 cookbook set Modernist Bread: The Art and Science. Denn has received one James Beard Award for food writing and another one for restaurant criticism. Other national honors include awards for reporting on issues of social justice, education, and equity, including the Emery Brownell Award for Excellence in Reporting on Equal Justice Issues awarded by the National Legal Aid & Defender Association, the Thurgood Marshall Journalism Award from the Death Penalty Information Center, and the James Aronson Award for Social Justice, awarded by Hunter College. (Her less serious work includes hosting the Internet’s most popular video on How To Carve a Watermelon Baby Carriage.) Denn lives in Seattle with her omnivorous husband and three vegetarian children.
