Tammi Teclemariam began her career in food and wine by working in a wine shop and interning at Eater, later freelance writing. She entered the national spotlight when her tweets about the failure of certain food media figures to address racial disparities in their organizations, in the wake of George Floyd's murder, became the catalyst for seismic upheavals in the food and wine media industry. Teclemariam's social media presence has made her a force to be reckoned with.
