Q&A with Alicia Saragosa

What is your favorite book of all time?

I love nonfiction, especially the intersection of creative nonfiction and food writing (if I was a genre, this would be it). So, naturally Eat, Pray, Love is pretty high up there.

What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination

David’s tea! See below for context.

Would you rather have the office stocked 24/7 with Starbucks coffee or Garrett popcorn?

I’m one of the few coffee-free PR pros out there (since November 2016 and going strong), thus Garrett popcorn.

One thing people in the world wouldn't know about you?

Although my nuclear family is a pretty average size at five people, my dad has 27 first cousins, so my family-at-large is quite large, very loud and, of course, lovable.

If you could live anywhere else in the world where would it be?

Florence, Italy *swoons*
