Hello! My name is Brianna Bowlan and I am the newest Seacoast Eat Local Intern! I am a junior at the University of New Hampshire and have a dual major, Nutrition with a focus in Dietetics and Ecogastronomy. For those of you who don’t know what Ecogastronomy is (which is very common), it is a major that integrates sustainable agriculture, nutrition, and hospitality.
I grew up in Bangor, Maine and love returning for winter and summer breaks. I enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities throughout the year such as skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, and swimming and hiking in the summer months. I also have a vegetable garden that my family and I pick all summer. I am passionate about all things food and I love being adventurous and trying new foods from other cultures. I am an avid cook/baker and try to use seasonal ingredients to get the best flavor and nutrition out of the food.
I am extremely excited to be apart of the Seacoast Eat Local family and look forward to learning everything I can about the local food in New Hampshire. If you see me at a farmers’ market, feel free to come up and say hi!
