She's a CIA graduate, pastry chef, and Cheez Wiz-lover: give a warm welcome to Melissa Sertich Velie, spring editorial Intern!
She's not big on eggs, but she's a pretzel fanatic with a soft spot for Ethiopian food, so we cut her some slack. Give a warm welcome to Miki Kawasaki, Serious Eats spring editorial intern!
Give a warm welcome to Cleo, one of our fall editorial interns. The FIT student grew up around the world, so she's got a serious palate we can't wait to tap into!
Give a big hello to Rémy Robert, Serious Eats fall editorial intern and proud New Orleans native.
Give a big hello to Lily Chin, one of our fall editorial interns! She has a penchant for bacony desserts, Alton Brown, decadent breakfasts, and food photography. We hear she makes some mean sushi...stay tuned!
He's a pancake lover, beer aficionado, and curry enthusiast: give a warm welcome to Ben Jay, Serious Eats editorial intern.
Say hello to Ida Yu, one of our newest summer interns. She's got a serious sweet tooth and has been called "crunchy" on more than one occasion. She takes it as a compliment, though, and wears her local food bumper stickers with pride.
Say hello to Sam Bresnick, Serious Eats summer editorial intern and bread pudding obsessive. Actually, he's kind of an everything obsessive, which is why we knew he'd be a great fit. Get to know him better after the jump.
Give a great big hello to Amalia, one of our summer editorial interns. Her love for Chinese food knows no bounds—even in the confines of the mall food court. Which is, of course, how we knew she'd fit in perfectly with team Serious Eats.
Give a warm welcome to Lauren, one of our summer editorial interns! She's a sandwich fanatic with a soft spot for pho, Haribo gummy bears, and Popcorners. Oh, and did we mention the girl can cook?
Say hello to one of our newest summer interns, Ari! She loves eating Marshmallow Fluff out of the jar, breakfast (or brunch) is her favorite meal of the day, and she named her dog after clam chowder.
Say hello to one of our newest interns, Linnea! Her Swedish upbringing helped turn her into the serious eater she is today (but don't give her lutfisk). She's a big fan of oatmeal, shakshuka, and Early Grey ice cream.
Say hello to one of our newest interns, Craig! He's not that picky when it comes to the perfect meal, as long as it involves friends and wine. But don't give him durian; he's given up on trying to like that. (We don't blame you, Craig.)
Say hello to one of our newest interns, Lily! She first realized she was a serious eater during her 8th grade computer class, when she'd spend her free time making Powerpoint presentations of food photos while everyone else played Neopets. We totally get you, Lily.
Maybe you haven't met Paul yet but he's been working behind-the-scenes as our web developer. His guilty pleasures? A fountain Coke and fries from McDonald's. Cat videos and animated gifs.
Say hello to one of our awesome interns at SEHQ! Tiffany is a big fan of Taiwanese shaved ice with adzuki red beans, mung beans, peanuts and taro chunks. Warning: she will finish the entire bowl no matter how full she is. Get to know more about Tiffany!
What goes into running a small business that sells to the top chefs in Chicago and home cooks around the country? Meet Patty Erd, the current owner of the Spice House in Milwaukee, to find out. "Ground spices have a shelf life, generally speaking one year. Beyond that, they won't make you sick, but they'll have lost their essential oils. Whole spices are a different story."
Time to say hello to another one of our awesome interns. Originally from Palo Alto, Gracie is a student at Duke and hanging with us at SEHQ in New York this summer. Her perfect meal? Something fried. Bacon. Avocado. Melted cheese. Sriracha. Runny egg yolk. Crusty sourdough bread. Butter. Molten dark chocolate.
It's time to say hello to another SE all-star intern, Aaron. In addition to food blogging over on his site pocketfork and being a self-proclaimed coffee snob, he works as a server captain an NYC restaurant. When did he realize he was a serious eater? When he learned an entire language—Italian—after he ate a great plate of pasta.
It's time to meet another new SE intern, Hayley! Originally from South Carolina but studying in Scotland, Hayley will be with us all summer at the office. She's already helped us alphabetize our cookbook library (phew), organize taste tests, and shared tasty snapshots from her travels. You'll be seeing many more posts from Hayley, but in the meantime, learn more about her, check out her blog bakingthebook.blogspot.com, and say hello!
