My name is Jennifer Zyman. I was born in Rio de Janeiro to Mexican-born parents—who are both avid travelers and food lovers. I spent most of my formative years in Atlanta and graduated from Emory University and California Culinary Academy in San Francisco. After culinary school after leaving the corporate marketing world, I worked as a cook in San Francisco.

After 4 years in San Francisco, I decided to return to Atlanta and subsequently started “The Blissful Glutton,” where I document my culinary experiences in Atlanta and beyond with reviews and photos—mostly at the prompting of family and friends who were sick of me talking about food all the time.

Fast forward 12 years later and I am a freelance restaurant critic and food writer with work in publications such as Creative Loafing, The Atlanta Journal and Constitution, and Eater Atlanta. These days, you can find most of my writing in the pages of Atlanta Magazine and its website.  

How can I contact you?

Please feel free to email me at I love getting reader mail, but don’t always get to it immediately because I do have other interests that aren’t edible. So, please be patient if you don’t hear back from me right away. Please check out my list of favorites if you need a fresh idea for your next outing. You can always catch me on social media.

Thanks for reading and happy eating,
