Title: Associate Editor
At Food & Wine since: 2010
Born and Raised: Mystic, CT (yes, "Mystic Pizza" is a real pizza shop)
Background: I worked in nonprofit art galleries in San Francisco before following my heart (and my stomach) back to grad school. I recently completed a Master's in Food Studies at NYU.
What I Do at Food & Wine: I research interesting new food world trends and up and coming chefs for our Trendspotting column.
Salty or Sweet: Salty, every time. I'll take a garlicky dill pickle over a chocolaty cookie any day.
How I Relax: Cooking at home. On Sundays, my husband and I buy vegetables at the amazing produce stands in our neighborhood in Queens and spend the afternoon cooking for the week ahead. It's the best cure I know for the Sunday blues.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
