About Harris, Patricia

Patricia Harris and David Lyon met over ratatouille made from fresh garden vegetables and courted over fudge-topped brownies. Decades later, they’re still cooking, still traveling, and still writing about it for their Hungry Travelers food and travel blog ( They are coauthors of Globe Pequot Press’s The Meaning of Food, Food Lovers' Guide to Boston, Food Lovers' Guide to Massachusetts, Food Lovers' Guide to Montreal, and Food Lovers' Guide to Vermont & New Hampshire. Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, they have written about Vermont cheese, Belgian beer, Tahitian poisson cru, New Hampshire hot dogs, Neapolitan pizza, Maine lobster, and Spanish elvers for such publications as the Boston Globe, The Robb Report, and Cooking Light. They have made every effort, however, to bring those tastes of travel back home and hope you do the same.
