My name is Helen Rosner. I write and edit things. Mostly food things, but generally speaking I have deep thoughts and strong opinions on many topics. (You can read some of them in this interview with me on Pursuitist, or listen to me say them out loud in this interview on the Heritage Radio Network.)
I'm the features editor at Eater. I'm also a contributing editor at Saveur, where I was formerly the executive digital editor. I've been an editor at sites like NYMag.com, Grub Street New York, Grub Street Chicago, and Eat Me Daily; before all the writing-on-the internet stuff, I was a book editor. With Amanda Hesser, I co-wrote the chapter "Food and Journalism" in the 2012 Routledge International Handbook of Food Studies. You can find my writing in Saveur, New York, Refinery29, Medium, the Hairpin, the Huffington Post, Food Fanatics, and on about a dozen blogs I've started and abandoned over the last decade and a half.
Besides word stuff, I also take pictures and shoot videos. My photos have appeared on NYMag.com, Saveur.com, and in the pages of Saveur magazine. I've shot video for Saveur, which you can find on the magazine's tablet editions, website, or on my Vimeo page.
Someone once called me "cranky but kindhearted," which I think is pretty on-point as far as my true self goes.
