Carole Bumpus is a culinary/travel writer who focuses on history, culture and cuisine. Her books have won wide acclaim. “Savoring the Old Ways” is the overarching theme for the work she produces.


A review of her first book, A Cup of Redemption, a historical novel, reveals her writing skill:


“Bumpus manages time and again to strike at the emotional hearts of her characters…A robust, entrancing debut [novel].” Kirkus Reviews, Indie Editor featured review .


Because her readers requested recipes for the dishes she wrote about, Carole followed with Recipes for Redemption.


Her original food/travel interviews, taken from over seventy-five people in France and fifty in Italy, are the heart of a series of books called Searching for Family and Traditions at the French Table and A September to Remember: Searching for Family and Traditions at the Italian Table.


Carole’s work has received recognition from International Book Awards. A retired family therapist, Carole began writing a culinary travel series when she stumbled upon the amazing stories of women, recipes and war in France. Her first book, the novel A Cup of Redemption, was based on the poignant story of a French woman she had met and interviewed.


If you enjoy travel, history, cuisine, and culture, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear the inside story of writing in this genre. For more information about Carole, please visit her website at CaroleBumpus.com.
