About the Author

Paul Galvani was born in London into an Italian family, the many branches of which were all in the restaurant business. He grew up in and was involved in all aspects of the business. He owes his love of food to his mother and his father, both of whom were great cooks. After graduating from Queen Mary College, London, with his BA in modern languages, he moved to Houston in 1978. In 1980, he graduated with his MBA in marketing from the University of Houston. Upon graduating, he spent five years in the oil field services industry, but the food biz beckoned. In 1984, he went to work for Riviana Foods Inc., the largest marketers of rice and pasta in the United States, where he heads up the marketing department.
Soon after graduation, Paul became an adjunct professor of the marketing department of the Bauer School of Business at the University of Houston, where he still teaches today. He began writing about food and restaurants in 1997 for the Houston Press and subsequently for The Paper City magazine, as well as Fort Bend Lifestyles magazine, the Houston Chronicle, Edible Houston, Houstonia magazine and Culture Map. Paul is the author of Houston's Top 100 Food Trucks, published in 2014.
