Darlene Adams Rowland


An avid traveler and purveyor of all things local, Darlene loves to discover new places through food and drink. Her passion for local foodways has been a focus of her career, including her work promoting local farmers and food at BREADA, the non-profit that manages Baton Rouge’s network of farmers markets. You can most likely find Darlene enjoying Louisiana’s rich culture at a local festival, craft beer in hand, with her home-brewing husband and two young boys in tow.
