“Everything I am is a direct result of the stories I have read and written. Over the years, I’ve developed a love and persistent curiosity about the restaurant industry. My greatest joy is to venture behind the swinging doors of a kitchen and learn from the people within. Then, I write.”
Sabrina Medora brings a unique voice and a diverse perspective to food writing. Born in Canada, she spent her formative years across continents with stints in Mumbai, Singapore, and New Jersey, all while staying connected to her Parsi roots; known for their celebration of food. Thanks to this upbringing, she is a skilled recipe developer specializing in Indian and pan-Asian cuisine.
With a Master’s in Creative Writing from The University of Chicago, her passionate and thoughtful pieces have appeared in award-winning publications including Food & Wine, Heated, Eater, Plate Magazine, The Kitchn, Wine Enthusiast, and more.
Medora has a wealth of experience in advertising and digital marketing, having worked for creative agencies and publishing companies. Her portfolio also includes custom content creation and execution for global brands in food, entertainment and retail.
In 2018, she launched Un-Plated: a national multimedia platform dedicated to celebrating the little-known stories and unsung heroes of the restaurant industry. Her work with Un-Plated has led to the production of dynamic events with the James Beard Foundation as well as pop-up dinners with respected chefs and restaurants in Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C, and Southern California. Medora’s events typically involve charitable components.
Currently, Medora is penning a culinary-focused young adult fiction book. She lives in San Diego with her husband and dog and is available for television, speaker, and panelist opportunities.
