Girl Smiling with Blue Eyes Sara Ventiera

Sara Ventiera


An eater and drinker with a writing problem, my work has been featured in a number of blogs, alt-weeklies, and glossy magazines, such as the Village Voice, Zagat,, Yahoo! Travel, NY Daily News,New Times Broward-Palm Beach, Where South Florida, as well as Gold Coast, Miami Living, Fort Lauderdale, and Dockwalk Magazines.

Food, cocktails, and the written word may take up most of my time these days, but I’ve done some other cool stuff. As a backpacker and a subsequent yacht chef, I’ve seen it all (or, at least a lot). From drinking moonshine with hill tribes in northern Thailand to working as a tour guide in Western Australia to sipping ridiculously expensive bottles of Château Haut-Brion in the second largest wine cellar in the world, I’ve had some interesting experiences in the course of my life.

I’m also a big fan of dogs. Ask me about mine, if you don’t want me to shut up.

After a long stint in South Florida, I made a northward migration back to Brooklyn and part-time in LA.
