Eddie Gehman Kohan | Civil Eats


Eddie Gehman Kohan is an award-winning writer based in Washington, DC. She created and writes Obama Foodorama, a blog that tracks the cultural and political changes of Obama administration food and agriculture policy, from White House initiatives through USDA. The blog began during campaign season, and Gehman Kohan is now the only independent blogger who actually reports *live* from the White House on a regular basis. Among other honors, ObamaFoodorama.com was recently added to the permanent archive of the Library of Congress as part of the web capture project that preserves critical historic documents that are "born digital." Her family has been farming in America since the 1700s, and when not on the White House beat, Gehman Kohan spends her time with livestock.
