about André Darlington and Tenaya Darlington

  • André Darlington has been writing about the cocktail revolution from a front-row barstool for over a decade. He is a long-time contributor to Madison, WI’s alternative weekly, Isthmus, where he has been an award-winning restaurant critic and cocktail columnist. He is a frequent wine and spirits judge in the U. S. and Europe, and, when he encounters a well-stocked bar, cannot resist getting behind the stick.

    Tenaya Darlington is a food writer and educator in Philadelphia. By day, she teaches writing at Saint Joseph’s University; by night she pens the cheese blog Madame Fromage (madamefromageblog.com). Her book, The Di Bruno Bros. House of Cheese, may be the first cheese guide to suggest pairing cheese with cocktails. Her writing has also appeared in Cooking Light, Global Traveler, and the Philadelphia Inquirer.

    André and Tenaya are co-authors of the cocktail blog Sprig+Spirit (sprigandspirit.com).
  • Tenaya Darlington is a blogger, novelist, professor of writing, and journalist who runs the blog Madame Fromage. Over the last six years, she has become Philadelphia's busiest cheese courtesan, hosting monthly tastings, penning magazine columns about local cheese, and freelancing for the largest cheese counter in Philadelphia, Di Bruno Bros. Their collaboration led to this book, a tasty guide to cheese. She has contributed to Grid Magazine and Cooking Light magazine. She lives in Philadelphia.
