Carrie Honaker is a Florida-based food and travel writer who is not sure where she will land next, but it will involve messy eating, a spicy Tempranillo, and finding the local farmers market. She has hauled oyster cages off the Forgotten Coast of Florida, harvested indigenous crops with the Abenaki Tribe in Vermont, learned to make beef patties from a Jamaican auntie, made Guavaberry Liqueur with a 7th generation distiller on St. Maarten, and stomped cacao pods in Grenada.
In addition to Afar, she writes about food, drink, travel, and culture for Bon Appetit, Conde Nast Traveler, Wine Enthusiast, Fodor’s Travel, Travel + Leisure, Food & Wine, and many more. At home, she leans into writing about the quirkier side of Florida, the farmers and small batch makers around the Sunshine State, and initiatives to preserve historic art and architecture. She also serves as the restaurant guide for 30a.com. Read more at https://carriehonaker.com/ or find her on Instagram and Twitter @writeonhonaker— she’s probably posting cute cat pictures.
