Recently, the folks at NowPublic.Com were kind enough to name me their new Cuisine Editor.

The NowPublic Cuisine Section is really growing, so if you’re a food blogger, a professional chef, or a passionate home cook I’d like to encourage you to share any interesting and topical food related news you’ve come across (from your food blog, community, and elsewhere) on the Cuisine portion of the site which is at
