About Julie Cohn

Hi.  My name is Julie Cohn and I am the head writer, editor, photographer, recipe developer, publisher, and dishwasher at A Cork, Fork, & Passport, a popular digital e-zine now over 15 years in publication!



As an accomplished food, travel, and lifestyle expert, professional recipe developer, and cocktail/wine mixologist, 99.9% of the recipes featured on A Cork, Fork, & Passport are my original creation. 

As an accomplished self-taught chef, I have been cooking since I was 12 years old and cooking professionally since I was 17. Over the years I have worked professionally as a caterer and private chef, as well as in several restaurant kitchens as a bartender, caterer, and dessert/pastry chef. 

As part of my business, I often work professionally with companies to create imaginative and delicious original recipes and/or content for their brand. A year ago, I started a quest toward a healthier lifestyle, incorporating clean eating with mindful exercise.  I am currently in the process of converting many of my recipes over to natural ingredients, with an emphasis on Mediterranean diet-style eating.  My goal is to have 50% of my recipes converted to wholesome clean eating and 50% as decadent indulgences. Yes, you will find butter and sugar on this site, I am a gourmet home cook after all, but I try to balance it with whole healthy ingredients too! 


As a 35+ year veteran of the travel industry as a corporate travel manager & meeting planner, I am the owner of Wander & Bloom Travel, a full-service travel agency specializing in corporate and leisure travel, and concierge services.  I have worked in the travel industry since 1988 as a corporate and leisure travel advisor, meeting and event planner, and as a travel writer. I am an accomplished world traveler with an eye for affordable luxury, unique experiences, and extraordinary adventures. 

In addition to writing for my own publication, I have worked as a freelance travel writer for print and online publications including the London Telegraph and Parks and Travel magazine. I am a designated travel expert at Flipboard and was a featured speaker at the 2018 Women in Travel Summit in Quebec. In addition, I am an expert in social media marketing and technology, with extensive WordPress, web design, and digital marketing experience.

I am a member of the North American Travel Journalist Association, The International Travel Writers Alliance, Travel Massive, and The American Society of Travel Advisors. My travel writing profile can be viewed on TravMedia.

Home Lifestyle

A growing segment on A Cork, Fork, & Passport is the home lifestyle section.  In addition to sharing occasional family anecdotes as a wife and mother (including as a mother of a young adult), I share DIY, crafting, home technology, and home & garden design ideas, as well as wellness, self-care, beauty/fashion, and fitness tips.  

Personal: Julie Cohn

 I am a GenX wife, mother, and doxie lover. I was raised in upstate New York, have lived in several states across the United States, and called Arizona home for over twenty-five years but recently moved back to New York.   My husband and I have an adult son in grad school.  When not working, I enjoy traveling, cooking, music, reading, hiking, skiing, and photography. I have also become a very outspoken advocate for social justice and political issues.
