Kimball, Parsons, Bittman Spotted on a Beach in Paradise

November 16, 2015

Big shake-ups in food media this year: Chris Kimball is leaving America’s Test Kitchen; Mark Bittman is splitting from the New York Times to pursue work with The Purple Carrot; and Russ Parsons left his food editor post at the LA Times earlier this year.

If you’re looking for the first two, stop: They’re on a beach in paradise, with a chartered boat waiting in the bay and piña coladas in hand. Enjoy the surf, guys! Don't forget the SPF! Grass skirts are 100% in.

Do flag down Mark, though—he might want to say goodbye one last time.

I have a thing for most foods topped with a fried egg, a strange disdain for overly soupy tomato sauce, and I can never make it home without ripping off the end of a newly-bought baguette. I like spoons very much.
