About Nevin

Nevin Martell

Nevin Martell is a D.C.-based food, travel, and lifestyle writer who has been published in The Washington Post, The New York Times, Saveur, Fortune, Travel + Leisure, Runner’s World, and many other publications. He is the author of seven books, including The Founding Farmers Cookbook: 100 Recipes for True Food & Drink, It’s So Good: 100 Real Food Recipes for Kids, the travelogue-memoir Freak Show Without a Tent: Swimming with Piranhas, Getting Stoned in Fiji and Other Family Vacations, and the small-press smash Looking for Calvin and Hobbes: The Unconventional Story of Bill Watterson and His Revolutionary Comic Strip. When he isn’t writing, eating, cooking or spending time with his family, he obsessively walks around D.C. in an effort to constantly top his Fitbit record (and burn all of the many calories he consumes).
