Press and Praise!

And actual award I won! This is me holding my trophy from the 2019 GANYC Apple Awards, which I’ve been producing for the last several years. Somehow, my committee managed to sneak this by me!

Have you heard? The good word? Of the foodie who was not a snob, but fun, and funny, and genuinely entertaining? And also a really hard worker?

I’m talking about myself, here…obviously. Read all about it!

Or listen, or watch, or whatever.

Take a gander at what other folks are saying about Fun Foodie NYC Tours, or hear founder, Adrienne Cooper talking about the business herself.

Thanks to everyone who's written about this fan of food and good times, and anyone who's invited Adrienne to talk shop on their podcast is more than a friend!

13 Female Entrepreneurs Who Prove Women Run The World

My family finally found a reason to be proud of me--I was featured in a Buzzfeed article! The branded content that was created to promo a show that's got Snoop as a producer, was generous enough to include me in a list of hardcore women who've made their own destinies. The company that I keep in this list is truly mind-blowing, from the two broads who created one of my favorite parody news sites, Reductress, to a fellow foodie female who owns and operates The Rolling Brick Food Truck. Click on the link above to read the full piece and in case you're wondering who some of my heroes are, they include my Mother, Grandmothers, and Alice Foote MacDougall.


The Soul Glo Project, Episode 33

The beautiful women of the Soul Glo Project are friends and funny ladies! They're supportive and smart and super entertaining! I was so grateful to be asked on the show, and it was one of the first few things I was doing to get back on my feet after my ankle injury. We discuss comedy in terms of food, I answered a couple of classic questions and then we tried a game of two truths and a lie. They continue to support the Food Funny and the Fun Foodie, and now Emily's got a great instagram of her eating ice cream. Check it out!

Anna, Keisha and Emily are much more polite than I am.

DHAP Show, Episode 333

My friend Dennis, do you know him? Well he has a podcast! It's super easy to remember the name, too. Dennis Has a Podcast. Dennis Holden is now someone I think of as a friend, but we connected because of our mutual friends, first. My good friend Adriane (yes, I know), was on his podcast and so when I took a listen and shared the post he realized what fun friends we had in common and invited me to be on his show. Of course, I said! And we scheduled the meeting for a date in winter, that ended up being rather snowy. I trekked out to Astoria, as I'm not one to break a date--especially where I get to talk about myself, and Dennis didn't! It was an earnest misunderstanding, as he thought we were scheduled for a phone interview at a different time. After I gave him a lot of slack for it, we rescheduled at my favorite neighborhood joint, Bettolona. We ate and talked.


My friend and I surprised our husbands with a tour of DUMBO with Adrienne. She was a great tour guide with lots of interesting factoids about Brooklyn and the DUMBO area. She really customized the tour to our interests, She brought us to some fun spots that we would not have found on our own and recommended the best items on the menu. She was lots of fun to spend the afternoon with, and we all would highly recommend her.
