Savoring Shreveport is Shreveport-Bossier’s first blog devoted to restaurant reviews and local foodie news. The blog was established in January 2010 by Alex, a newcomer and food enthusiast disheartened with the coverage of Shreveport’s food scene. Savoring Shreveport aims to give mention, for better or for worse, to the restaurants often overlooked in favor of larger chains. As Shreveport grows, so does its culinary thumbprint, and each eatery deserves a closer look.
About Alex: Alex is a 2009 graduate of the University of South Florida in Tampa, with a B.A. in English. While she started cooking as a hobby sometime during her sophomore year, her passion for food in general was ignited during her graduation dinner at the internationally recognized Bern’s Steak House.
Alex moved to Shreveport in 2009. In addition to blogging, she works as a freelance writer with work appearing in SB Magazine, VisitSouth.com, and Encore Louisiana.
She feels she’s adjusted well to Southern life, but she’s homesick for Cuban sandwiches, watching the sun set while neck-deep in the Gulf, and the curbless suburbs of her hometown. Oh, and bagels. [EDITED 4/11/12: Shreveport now has Cuban sandwiches and bagels!]
