As the voice of food for The Seattle Times I spent a decade as the paper's lead restaurant critic and food columnist and contributed to Sunday's Pacific Northwest magazine.
In 2008 I introduced our online audience to All You Can Eat — a daily blog covering restaurants, cookery and food news — and print readers to a Wednesday food-page column of the same name. Solely written, edited and (in most cases) photographed by me until 2012, All You Can Eat swiftly became one of the Times' top blogs and in 2011 won a first-place award for Best Food Blog from the Association of Food Journalists.
My Taste columns, recipes and quarterly cover stories appeared in Pacific Northwest Magazine from 2012 through 2014 and I wrote monthly restaurant round-ups and chef profiles that garnered cover treatment in Friday's Arts & Entertainment section. As the Seattle Times food writer and restaurant critic I frequently appeared as a guest speaker at local and civic events.
