tephanie Miskew is a Writer, Wine Educator, Certified Sommelier and author of The Glamorous Gourmet, a blog dedicated to her passions in life: food, wine, fashion and travel.
The Glamorous Gourmet debuted in February 2011 as the reincarnation of Stephanie Savors the Moment, a blog which chronicled Stephanie's year-long journey cooking her way, a la "Julie & Julia," through the Junior League of Boca Raton’s James Beard award-winning Cookbook, Savor the Moment. The project was to commemorate the book’s 10th Anniversary and in the process, a new career was born! With its broader focus, The Glamorous Gourmet reflects Stephanie's take on food and wine with a sense of style, humor and down to earth approach.
In addition to her blog, Stephanie has written wine reviews, educational content and wine event coverage for Cork’d, wine guru Gary Vaynerchuk’s website; the Broward-Palm Beach New Times’ “Clean Plate Charlie” blog, and the Junior League of Boca Raton’s quarterly magazine, The Bridge. Stephanie is also currently a Contributing Editor to The Preiser Key and her wine picks, food and wine pairing recommendations and music playlists have been featured in publications including the South Florida Sun Sentinel, the Palm Beach Post and Boca Raton Magazine.
In addition to writing, Stephanie also conducts wine tastings and educational seminars in both public and private venues. In 2010 she founded and continues to host the popular series “The Art of Wine and Food” at The Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale. She also presents at prominent local charitable events including The Boca Raton Historical Society’s “Boca Bacchanal” (she and her husband Steve were Chairs for the 2012 event which marked the fundraiser’s 10th Anniversary), The Spirit of Giving Network’s “Women, Wine & Handbags”, and the Delray Beach Public Library’s “Wine & Literature.” Stephanie has also served as a Judge for the prestigious American Fine Wine Competition, and recently joined esteemed Chef Norman Van Aken and Master Sommelier Virginia Philip as a Judge for the Inaugural Country Club Chef Showdown, benefiting Hospice of Palm Beach County.
Stephanie is a Certified Sommelier with The Court of Master Sommeliers, a Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) with The Society of Wine Educators, and a Wine Location Specialist for CIVC (Champagne) and IVDP (Port) with the Center for Wine Origins. She has also achieved her Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Advanced Certificate and in her continuous quest for knowledge, she is presently pursuing her WSET Diploma.
Stephanie also received her B.A. degree in Art History from Rollins College and an M.A. in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Colorado, Boulder. She currently resides in Delray Beach, Florida with her husband Steve and dachshunds Louis and Coco.
