Janice Nieder could be the love child of Indiana Jones and Julia Child. A culinary trendsetter, Janice might be found sharing a smoked monkey with the local shaman deep in the Amazon jungle, “running with the dogs” while truffle hunting in Marche, Italy or crashing a wedding in Pakistan, where she was wined and dined by over 200 men — and no women.

To keep things in balance Janice also enjoys writing about her luxury Girlfriend Getaways, such as the time she stayed in a Pasha’s palace in Istanbul (for $10,000 /night) in a room that had just been vacated by Paris Hilton.

Janice has received San Francisco’s Community Leadership Award of Excellence for her on-going work as the Volunteer Coordinator for C.H.E.F.S. (Conquering Homelessness Through Employment in Food Service) a program she helped develop that provides culinary and job skill training for the homeless.

She is a proud member of Society of American Travel Writers, Bay Area Travel Writers, the International Travel Writers Alliance, and International Food, Wine and Travel Writers Association.
