Daniel Schumacher

Louisiana’s favorite food magazine has a new editor-in-chief. An enthusiastic eater and seasoned home cook, Daniel Schumacher is constantly on the lookout for unique stories, delicious recipes, and food trucks. He began his career as a food writer and editor in New York City working with nationally renowned teams at Food Arts and Gourmet magazine before moving down South to join the food department at Cottage Living in Birmingham, Alabama. 

When the magazine was shuttered in the fall of 2008, Daniel had already fallen in love with the South, so he remained in Birmingham as a columnist for Birmingham Magazine, where he was charged with highlighting up-and-coming restaurants and finding interesting beers.

Daniel can make a roux, has shucked his fair share of oysters, and has a deep abiding love the trinity. He says, “Louisiana’s uplands, bayous, and Gulf shores captivate me, and I look forward to searching its parishes for authentic flavors. Sharing the stories behind a great recipe, chef, or restaurant is my passion.”

All of us at Louisiana Cookin’ hope you’ll join us in welcoming Daniel to our team. If you see him at a food event around the state, be sure to show him some Louisiana hospitality. Or, you can reach him now at Daniel@LouisianaCookin.com. Show him some love and share your favorite Louisiana recipe or story.
