Jenna Passaro is on a mission to help foodies cook up their wildest dreams — in and out of the kitchen.
Years ago, Jenna ditched a predictable career path with very few vacation days to pursue a life of fun, food and travel.
Along the way, she started Sip Bite Go and wrote The Home Chef’s Sous Vide Cookbook. Jenna also hosts the podcast, My Weird Food Obsession, which explores the fascinating stories behind people who pursue careers in peculiar food niches.
Jenna is based in Portland, OR and is always in the mood for pizza.
