Other Food Writers

Good evening, Tom! (Well, at least it's evening while I write this.)

My partner and I will be moving to the DelMarVa region soon, after a lifetime in Los Angeles. I'm glad to report that he is planning on subscribing to the Post as our major paper, so I'll be reading your work on a regular basis.

What other writers on food would you recommend my reading? While my interest is mostly in learning about the local food scene, I'm by no means limited by territory, of course. I'd like to know which writers you enjoy and admire yourself.

Thank-you for the time you're spending with us!


We'll not discriminate great from small.

No, we'll serve anyone - meaning anyone -

And to anyone at all!

Of the current crop of restaurant (please note the qualifier) writers

around the country, I always look forward to reading Rick Nelson of the

Minneapolis Star Tribune, Brett Anderson of the Times-Picayune in New

Orleans, Nancy Leson of the Seattle Times, Jonathan Gold (news flash:

soon to be departing his regular gig in Gourmet), Sherrie Verbila of the

Los Angeles Times and anything put down on paper by Ruth Reichl, who has

really raised the bar for food critics. (No one writes a better editor’s

notes at the beginning of a magazine than she does.) William Grimes of

the NY Times is a joy to read, too, even if I’m not always in agreement with

his assessments.

Tom--how much of your work is online at Washingtonpost.com--so viewers around the country can read you without actually going out and buying the paper?

Most of my reviews for the Magazine and my "postcards" for Travel are archived. To locate the former, click on the Entertainment tab on the home page of washingtonpost.com, then the Restaurants tab. My Travel stuff is on that site, under Columns.
