Cook: Share : Connect
Ellie Markovitch recently moved to Maine with her husband, two children and dog Kora. She applies her passion for innovative and sustainable food practices and her unique skill set that includes visual and social media storytelling and community engagement.
Ellie has a professional background in photojournalism and an MFA degree in Electronic Arts. She is also a skillful cook. Her work revolves around media and food literacy. She uses food as a starting point for conversations and community building. As a member of the Chefs’ Consortium of New York State, she helped develop and deliver programs that raise awareness of the local food systems. While in Upstate New York, she also developed and ran educational programs in collaboration with local organic farmers and the Agricultural Stewardship Association.
She was born in Brazil and spent most of my childhood weekends at my grandparents’ small farm. There was a story behind everything we did with our food – from how it was harvested, cooked, and shared.
