The Food Virgin FAQ

When did The Food Virgin start?

The Food Virgin columns began in 2005, though technically the website was launched in 2006.

How did it begin?

The Food Virgin herself went for a dinner in Washington D.C. and had Ethiopian food for the first time.  It was great food and a fun experience, but was so far from what she was used to that she got to wondering how many other people don't try different cuisines because they seem way too weird and scary, and people don't know what to expect, order or do.  Having tried a lot of different cuisines from around the world (and curious to try many more), The Food Virgin started putting together the columns and website, aiming to help Food Virgins everywhere be comfortable eating anywhere their first time. 

Who visits The Food Virgin website?

We get questions from food newbies, as well as more experienced diners who want to eat like the experts.  The Food Virgin has answers for everyone, carefully researched, and aided by top chefs and food experts when appropriate.
