My name is Paula Forbes, and I'm a freelance food and restaurant writer based in Austin, Texas. I've reviewed cookbooks for over ten years, for such outlets as Lucky Peach, Eater, Epicurious, and Food52. You can read my cookbook reviews here.

Stained Page News is my cookbook newsletter. I publish an issue every Tuesday including the latest releases, book deals, sample recipes, trends, and more.

My first cookbook, The Austin Cookbook: Recipes and Stories from Deep in the Heart of Texas, is out now from Abrams.
