About

Edible Orlando is rooted in the notion that saving room in our busy lives and tight budgets to eat a little more local food has great benefits. Buying real food from locally-owned businesses strengthens our economy, supports Florida’s farmers and fishermen, and keeps us and our environment healthy. And when we sit down at the table with our friends and family – either at home or at our favorite restaurant – we can really taste the difference.

Kendra, Katie and Pam are all Central Florida girls in some fashion; publisher Kendra Lott and editor Katie Farmand were born here, and both are back with a passion for food writing. Kendra has a master’s degree in Food Studies from New York University, and is the author of Unique Eats and Eateries of Orlando. Katie is a food stylist and recipe developer, and she is a proud alum of the master’s program at the University of Florida College of Journalism. Managing editor Pam Brandon has decades of editing, writing and culinary marketing experience, and has written more than 20 cookbooks, including two about Florida farms and seafood. We all embrace the Edible philosophy and think that our combined skills promise a dynamic, fun magazine.
