Hi I’m Brooke

Hi there. I’m Brooke Eliason (pronounced “e-listen”), a Salt Lake City native that’s simply obsessed with all things food. I started Female Foodie in 2010 when I was living in the little touristy town of West Yellowstone, Montana and decided to document my experiences trying every single restaurant in town.

Twelve years later, we have hundreds of restaurant guides and restaurant-inspired recipes powered by yours truly and our incredibly talented team of food writers and recipe developers across the country. It is an honor and privilege to engage in the “work” that I do every day.

My perfect day includes throwing together a decadent breakfast sandwich with James Taylor playing in the background, followed by a long, scenic hike in the mountains, and ending things with a slow, sit-down dinner (pizza or pasta!) with my family outside while the sun sets– don’t forget something chocolate for dessert.

I’m married to my best friend and the love of my life, Cody Eliason, and we love being parents to our two boys, George and Freddie. As a family, we have lived in SLC, Austin, and now the Portland area, and we even spent 18 months on the road, traveling our way through the U.S. and Europe. I have made life-long friends through this foodie adventure and hope to meet you too!
