Catherine Down is the Assistant Editor of Paris by Mouth

Catherine has worked on an organic farm in rural France, coordinated farm tours in Philly, stuffed her face as a cheesemonger in Massachusetts, and studied food in just about every way possible while getting her Masters in Food Culture and Communications at the University of Gastronomic Sciences in Italy. Most recently, she launched and edited Edible DC magazine, part of the James Beard award-winning network of local food magazines from Edible Communities. She could happily eat nothing but cheese every day.
