Addie Broyles

Food Writer

Hailing from the Ozarks, Addie Broyles expanded her cooking (and eating) skills on the West Coast and Spain before settling in Austin, where she writes about food for the Austin American-Statesman. The University of Missouri graduate has won numerous awards for her writing and her blog, Relish Austin, which is also the name of her weekly column in the Statesman. In 2010, she helped create the Austin Food Bloggers Alliance, a nonprofit organization made up of more than 100 Central Texas food bloggers. When she is not writing about everything from blackberry cobbler and barbecue to farmers and fancy chefs, she is trying to keep up with her two young sons and musician husband.
