Hello, I’m Doug Reffue the owner and editor of Foodzie.  By day I’m the CEO of a marvelous company in the personal care space and the father of two wonderful children. I live with them, my wife and our dog Layla just outside of Boston. My knowledge and life-long passion for food started in my Italian grandmother’s kitchen in the 1970s.  Since then, food and it’s paramount place in our lives has been a fascination of mine.

Foodzie was originally created in 2008 in San Francisco with a focus on artisanal food producers across the country. Over the years we’ve maintained an interest in the many craftsmen and women who are growing, creating and manufacturing small batch food products.

During the past decade we’ve expanded Foodzie to encompass many other aspects of food including nutrition, wellness and even the subtleties and details of cooking and baking.

Foodzie Logos Through the Years

Food is one of the most important parts of life. It is often the centerpiece that surrounds and enhances our time with family, friends and the ones we love. The enjoyment of great food goes hand-in-hand with a life well lived.

At Foodzie we’re dedicated to helping our readers get the most out of their experience with food.  We dive deep into every aspect of food.  Nutrition, dieting, health and wellness are all covered. But more importantly, we go deep into the finer points of food and in the process take you on a journey of discovery.

At the core of Foodzie we strive to bring real facts and pertinent information to our readers. I’ve scoured the internet to find writers who bring real knowledge and deep experience to their subjects.  Each piece is well-researched and carefully considered before it is dedicated to our blog.

I encourage you to contact me directly at howdy at foodzie.com.  I check this email quite often and will get back to you regarding questions, comments or suggestions.

Thank you for spending time with us and we hope you enjoy our corner of the internet at the intersection of food and life.
