My name is Helen Rosner. I edit things. I sometimes write.
I'm the features editor at Eater, where I assign, acquire, and produce longform stories about food culture. I'm also a contributing editor at Saveur, where I was formerly the executive digital editor, and I'm the person behind the Saveur New Classics Cookbook. I've been an editor at sites like NYMag.com, Grub Street, and Eat Me Daily (of which I was a co-founder); before all the writing-on-the internet stuff, I was a book editor. You can find my writing in Saveur, New York, Refinery29, Medium, the Hairpin, the Huffington Post, Food Fanatics, Buzzfeed, and on about a dozen blogs I've started and abandoned over the last decade and a half.
I take lots of pictures, sometimes professionally. My photos have appeared on Departures.com, NYMag.com, Saveur.com, Eater.com, and in the pages of Saveur. 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 is pretty on-point.
