E31: Beyond Jollof Rice - Food Media & Representation with Vonnie Williams

Vonnie Williams is a first-generation Ghanaian-American and food writer. After diving in head-first into the world of food media working for a boutique PR firm, Vonnie was frustrated with the lack of minority representation in food media.

She’s written for Food & Wine, TASTE and Edible Brooklyn, and is founded sincerelyvonnie.com, a food and culture website that serves as an unapologetic and sincere space to talk about her experiences.

In her free time, Vonnie loves to cook the easiest dishes from her cookbooks, eat copious amounts of ice cream, and perfect her jollof rice recipe.
