Hi there! I’m Jackie and I decided to start Rapetti Review in early 2015 as a platform to recommend some of my favorite eats around NYC. The blog has since become more and more travel oriented as I venture to new and exciting destinations.

Jackie’s Travel Map

Back when I was graduating elementary school, I had to decide what I wanted to be when I grew up to publish under my yearbook photo. Always the foodie, I went with “Chef.” I actually remember I had writteIMG_2805n “cook” on the submission paper and when I told my mom, her response was: “Great. Now people are going to think you want to work at McDonalds.” Luckily, the yearbook editors were savvy enough to interpret “cook” to mean “Chef.

Somewhere between 5th grade and high school I decided I wanted to be a journalist rather than a chef and went on to earn my B.A. in Journalism from Northeastern University. Go Huskies!

Nowadays, I work in NYC imageto fund my random adventures and spend time with wonderful friends and family — including my adorable pup, Rudolph!

Spread kindness and cheer, xo

P.S. Life’s too short. Eat cake for breakfast.

  1. Hi Jackie it’s nice meeting you, you have a great blog and you write so well. NYC is the best place to eat anything and when I was there I mostly ate from food trucks, it’s just great. Thanks for taking a look at my blog, look it forward reading your posts.

  2. I don’t have any cake but I do have some yummy cookies. They say that life is what happens while we are planning our future, I think you know exactly what you want in life, just don’t ever grow up, it’s over rated.

  3. I don’t know when you wrote your ‘about’ page or whether you have come a little closer to finding who you are and what you want to be, but I can relate. The world is filled with choices and options… Good luck in your search!
    And thanks for following my blog, I’m glad I discovered yours as a consequence. 🙂
