I'm going to be a judge on Top Chef Masters in Vegas!

Life has presented some tasty morsels as of late, and I plan on devouring them with a vengeance. First and foremost, it was finally announced that I'll be a regularly-occurring judge on season 4 of Top Chef Masters. Holy what! Do you have any idea how hard it was to keep that one quiet all this time? Considering a few years ago I was a minion at the L.A. Times showtracking the Top Chef empire, the whole deal is kinda surreal. The first episode airs July 25. Here's hoping that I don't end up looking like a total dope!

Secondly, I'm taking on a new role at LAist, where I'll be resident Food Editor for the month of June. I'm stoked. Between this and my columns at Grub Street, it's all food, all the time. Please read me over at LAist and let me know what you think.

In the meantime, happy eating!
