Mary Loudermilk is a native Oregonian, currently living in Bali with her husband, Derek. After graduating from CU Boulder with a BA in International Affairs, she moved to Bozeman, MT and started her food blog “The Kitchen Paper.” The Kitchen Paper is full of recipes focusing on accessible, “real” food with bold, pleasing flavours.
When she isn’t working on books or food blogging, Mary enjoys being outdoors! She loves to run, Nordic ski, bike, practice yoga, and camp. Combining any of these activities with travel is even better — as she has done for the last year traveling and living in Asia.
