Darie O’Connor, Destination Darie, is co-host and producer of TryThisDish Radio. She brings over 30 years experience in the food industry to the show. This includes many years as a homemaker cooking for a growing family. She assisted in opening two restaurants, worked as a private chef/caterer, became a self-taught food blogger plus has held just about every position known of in a restaurant. Yes, even dishwasher. After raising four sons as a full-time homemaker, in 2008 she returned to college to finish a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from The University of Texas at San Antonio.
In 2014 she left the criminal justice field to pursue a dream. She began a blog to share recipes, personal stories, restaurant reviews, photographs, and poetry. Dariesdailydish was birthed due to requests from friends and family for recipes but ultimately became a form of personal transition from a stressful career into something else. A life.
In July 2015 she was a featured guest as a food blogger on Try This Dish Foodie Show, a new radio show hosted by Sean Young. After two months Sean assigned her to Co-host and shortly afterwards, producer. Now Darie travels both in the US and abroad, to promote TryThisDish Radio. In 2016 Darie, along with Sean Young, covered the Winner’s Circle at the World Food Championships in Orange Beach, Alabama and will return in 2017.
