Annie is a journalism student in Boston who's studied abroad in Ireland and Peru (the only common thread between the two being an abundance of potatoes). She still waxes poetic about the Andes and bus rides through the mountains of western Ireland with berserk old men at the wheel. She is still in the top 10 percent of pickiest eaters in the world, but has gotten much better since she began traveling to foreign countries and being assigned to cover European chefs' competitions.
