Suzanne Tafur

Suzanne Pfefferle Tafur was born and raised in New Orleans. She loves the city and has no plans of leaving! Suzanne has been writing about New Orleans culture – its food, festivals, and personalities – for nearly ten years. Her work has been published in The New Orleans Advocate, The Times Picayune | New Orleans Advocate, Gambit Weekly, New Orleans Magazine, and Biz New Orleans, among other publications.

She produced two feature length documentaries about ethnic cuisines in New Orleans for WYES-TV, the local PBS affiliate. Suzanne has also worked in the editorial departments of Biz New Orleans and Sugar Journal, an international trade publication. She launched her career at Pelican Publishing Company, where she wrote copy for flap jackets and managed author publicity.

Suzanne received her MA in English from the University of New Orleans. And she’s done with school … for now, at least. Suzanne is a wife of a Colombian, the mom of an energetic 3-year-old, and the owner of a very large, but sweet brown lab. Although this Uptown resident is passionate about exploring her hometown of New Orleans, she’s been stricken with global wanderlust since childhood. To date, Suzanne has journeyed to India, Egypt, Vietnam, Jamaica, Cuba, Colombia, Puerto Rico, France, and Italy. She’s looking forward to her next adventure – whether it’s in the Marigny or on the Mediterranean coast.
