Sarah Sudar, of EatPGH will host this talk. EatPGH is one of the most popular food blogs in the Western Pennsylvania region.

Sarah is passionate about two food groups: cupcakes and french fries, and isn’t afraid to order dessert and coffee after a huge meal. She received her master’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communication (along with Julia) in 2011 and is happy to report that she is actually using her degree wisely. When she isn’t writing about food, she can be found in the gym trying to burn off some of those extra cupcake calories.
