Sarah Fritsche


Professional Experience

Hello! My name is Sarah Fritsche. I cook, I eat, I drink, and I write. I’m a food writer, content creator, and all around recipe pro. For over a decade I was a staff writer with The San Francisco Chronicle’s James Beard Award-winning Food team, where I reported on the Bay Area’s obsession with all things food. I earned my culinary degree from the California Culinary Academy and have worked in professional kitchens. I also headed up The Chronicle’s former test kitchen. Prior to immersing myself in the world of food journalism, I spent more than five years devoted to executive administrative support and program management in private business and university settings. If there’s a common thread to all my work, it’s my knack for translating bold and innovative ideas in a way that's approachable and engaging for a wide-reaching audience.
