Educational Services


I’m available for public speaking engagements, copywriting and content creation, marketing, and branding for the craft food and beverage, travel, and outdoor industries.

I also do Brand Ambassador work for the cheese and craft distilling industries.

I’ve taught recreational cooking classes since 1996, and offer cheese classes, farmers’ market demos, farm tours and other culinary/craft spirit education opportunities.

Laurel has a great knack for capturing the vibe of her clients and tailoring social media posts to fit the different companies she works with.  Her extensive knowledge of all things cheese, and her connections in the industry were a huge plus for us.” Wendy Mitchell, Avalanche Cheese Company

 “A proponent of sustainable foodstuffs, Laurel has written about farm-to-table issues long before they became popular. Her extensive international network of farmers and artisanal producers ensures her story ideas are fresh and timely.” Kate Leahy, award-winning cookbook author (A16 Food + Wine; SPQR: Modern Italian Food and Wine; The Preservation Kitchen, with Paul Virant).
