This week, Kenji and I spent our last days in the office. :( Don't worry—Kenji is just moving to San Francisco, not leaving Serious Eats. I, on the other hand, spent my last day at Serious Eats today and am taking a few months off before moving to Taipei at the end of August to enroll in a Mandarin-learning program. That's the short story. You'll read more about it next week. In the meantime, I'm just trying to not cry while thinking about how much I loved working at Serious Eats. I'll recompose myself over the weekend.
So please enjoy this, my final This Week at Serious Eats post, featuring a multitude of Hambone and Yuba photos (it was their last week in the office too!), good-bye celebrations, taste tests, and more.
This column will continue after I'm gone, but I'll note that I've loved documenting the gloriousness of the Serious Eats office over the last few years. Thank you for reading!
