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?
'Meet and Eats' on Serious Eats
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.
Time to meet a new Serious Eats intern! Hally hates salmon roe and loves Ina Garten. She's seen every episode of Ina's show and has read all of her books. "I'm going to be her for Halloween. We have similar hair."
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 Serious Eats summer intern! Meet Jed Portman. His perfect meal? Pork, coarse chopped, extra brown from Lexington BBQ with slaw, hush puppies, pork skins, and a big styrofoam cup of Cheerwine. Topped off with a slice of pecan pie, maybe, and a glass of bourbon.
It's time to get to know another one of our awesome summer interns. Jodi is a bio and music major at University of Pennsylvania who enjoys everything from Wawa. "Chicken finger sandwiches, cream filled donuts, mac and cheese. It all just tastes better after 3 a.m."
It's time to say hello to another Serious Eats intern. Sam loves milkshakes; a Shake Shack Black and White would probably be his favorite, but Mr. Softee works in a pinch. He's also a little obsessed with Bacon, Egg and Cheese sandwiches. Get to know Sam!
Time to say howdy to another Serious Eats intern! Molly is reminded she's a serious eater..."every time I meet someone who's not a serious eater. For example, people who say they forgot to eat all day. I just can't understand forgetting something like that."
It's time to meet another one of our stellar interns. Say hello to Niki! She knew she was a serious eater when she was about five years old and her mom took her to the oyster bar in Grand Central. "She told me I could try one to see if I liked it and to her surprise and amusement, I threw it back 'like a sailor' and politely asked for more."
It's time to say hey-llo to another Serious Eats intern. Meet Will! He loves his mama's home-cooked meals and has a guilty pleasure for McDonald's hashbrowns (shh, don't tell). He first realized he was a serious eater at age 12, when he was genuinely excited to receive a spray bottle of balsamic vinegar from his mom as a present.
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.
Say hello to Lauren! She just started as an intern here at SEHQ, and is already doing a very swell job. Her guilty pleasures? Super dark chocolate, tacos of every stripe, and duck fat for roasting vegetables. Let's get to know her better, shall we?
Say hello to our new social media intern Anna! Her perfect meal? Anything Southern with amazing company. Her favorite food people? Andrew Carmellini, Mark Bittman, and Paula Deen, who only slightly reminds Anna of her mother.
You've seen Alice's beautiful photos on the site. Now it's time to get to know the snappy lady behind the camera! Her guilty pleasures? Spicy ox tongue and tripe (Szechuan style), McDonald's soft serve, hoarding takeout leftovers for three+ days.
Say hello to another one of our fantastic fall interns Christine! Her guilty food pleasures include eating peanut butter straight from the jar, SpaghettiOs, and dessert for breakfast. And the fresh tofu from En Japanese Brasserie? She could live off the stuff.
Please say hello to one of our new fall interns, Paige! Originally from Annapolis, Maryland, but currently living in Brooklyn, she's a big lover of everything from McDonald's double cheeseburgers to raw oysters. And her favorite food personality? Jacques Pepin. "Have you seen that man make an omelet?"
Adam Richman, one of the more serious of eaters around, is the host of The Travel Channel's hit show Man vs. Food Nation. In each episode he travels to a different city and coaches a local through food challenges, tackling everything from a six-pound barbecue sandwich to a super spicy pizza. We recently chatted with him over the phone to find out his pre-challenge routine to get warmed up, his favorite spot for mint chocolate chip ice cream, his last bite on earth, and more.
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!
