Location: New York City

First-generation Ghanaian-American Vonnie Williams is a freelance food and travel journalist based in New York. She specializes in writing about the relationship between food, culture, and identity. In addition to Food & Wine, Vonnie's work has appeared in Condé Nast Traveler, Eater, Serious Eats, Epicurious, TASTE, Refinery29, Food52, and more. 


Vonnie Williams held a variety of jobs (including parking enforcement) before she found her niche in content marketing, working with brands such as Rosetta Stone and TJMaxx. This led her to clients in the food and beverage industry, including Caraway, McCormick, Doordash, and Good Eggs. She also began writing stories for publications like Edible Brooklyn and Thrillist, and the James Beard Award-nominated food and travel site Gastro Obscura, as well as travel guides for Atlas Obscura. Vonnie loves photography and cooking — though admittedly only the easy recipes from cookbooks — and her love for ice cream knows no bounds.
