About Eve

Eve Turow Paul, author and consultant, has taken on a big challenge: understanding the preferences and trends of the mysterious Millennial. By taking a deep dive into the psychology of this generation, Turow has gained an understanding of their fears and desires, especially when it comes to food culture around the world. Through her book A Taste of Generation Yum: How the Millennial Generation’s Love for Organic Fare, Celebrity Chefs and Microbrews Will Make or Break the Future of Food, Turow has become, in our eyes, an expert in Millennials and their unparalleled fascination with food.

Turow approached the research for her book by interviewing high profile food writers and commentators including Anthony Bourdain and Michael Pollan, and feedback received  directly from Millennials themselves. She provides fascinating insights in to Millennials obsession with food and their role in the future of food culture and policy, specifically in America. Through her studies Turow has been able to guide start-ups and Fortune 500 companies alike in making sound decisions when it comes to Millennials. Her writings have been featured in The Chicago Tribune, Plate, Refinery29 and The Huffington Post.
