About

Welcome to ManTalkFood.com.

Jake Emen - whiskey, spirits, travel writerI’m Jake, and I’m your host on this journey. I eat food, and I talk food. I drink whiskey, and I’ll be talking about that too. Pretty simple. I’m a writer based outside of Washington, D.C., and this site is really focused on something we can all agree is a good thing: enjoying good eats & downing good drams.

You’ll also find a collection of my other writing and various misadventures. That means beyond the world of food and drink, I’ll be talking travel and lifestyle, local news and events, and whatever else may catch my attention from time to time.

Beyond this site right here, I’ve been published in a wide range of print and online outlets, including USA Today, GQ, Whisky Advocate, Vice Munchies, Roads & Kingdoms, Eater, Liquor.com, October, The Washington Post Express, Washington City Paper, Time Out, Paste Magazine, Airows, Distiller, Tales of the Cocktail, Yahoo (News, Sports, Local), Tasting Table, The Whiskey Wash, Alcohol Professor, Destination Weddings & Honeymoons, Old Liquors Magazine, On Tap Magazine, and many others.

Oh yea, and I’m also always looking for new opportunities—so feel free to get in touch with me to discuss a new project, story, or idea.

I never turn down a tasty bite or sip, and here’s where I’ll be discussing it. Cheers.
