Fresh Face on the Food Scene
“People recognize me now and come up to me in the supermarket to tell me they’d just love to have my job. It’s a thrill!” says journalist Rachel Forrest, 42, from Exeter. Her restaurant review column, Dining Out, appears in the Portsmouth Herald’s entertainment guide and her Wine Me Dine Me column, also in that paper, is now a radio show on WSCA-FM in Portsmouth. She writes the Cheap Eats column for New Hampshire Magazine and she’s branching out to writing about authors, music and, of course, where to go out to eat. “If I can help people find a great place to enjoy fantastic food or introduce them to a new flavor experience I’m happy. I just have to keep going to the gym.”
New Hampshire Magazine knows where "It" is at. Each November, we identify the state's most happening people and publish their names and profiles in our annual "It List."
So what defines an "It" Person?
How about buzz, panache, je ne sais quoi, currency, a person whose time has come, a person of tomorrow, a timeless person, noteworthy, below the radar, in the news, in the know, hot, cool, high impact, slippery, a mover and shaker, a humble saint, a behind-the-scenes operator, a scenery chewer, an unsung hero, a hero who knows how to sing.
It's a quality that's hard to define, but you know it when you see it.
Above is one member of the 2006 It List.
