Editor in Chief of Food & Wine magazine
As Editor in Chief of Food & Wine magazine since 1995, Dana Cowin has exercised leadership to transform the magazine into an indispensable piece of popular media-a must-read for restaurant lovers, travelers, wine connoisseurs, and cooks alike. In addition to her editorial works, Cowin oversees the Food & Wine culinary book series including titles like "The Best of the Best" and the annual releases: "Food & Wine Magazine's Wine Guide" and "Food & Wine Cocktails". Beyond writing, Cowin serves on the Board of Directors of the New York-based hunger relief organization, City Harvest and has spearheaded the "Skip Lunch, Fight Hunger" campaign. Most remarkably, however, Cowin "partied" her way through a battle with breast cancer and can now proudly call herself a breast cancer survivor!
