Guacamole meets kimchi, like Brad meets Angelina, to become: Guaca-chi! My post for the Let's Lunch crowd.

Story
Tagline
Food/Travel editor, The Washington Post (on leave); author, "Serve Yourself: Nightly Adventures in Cooking for One" (2011) and the upcoming "Eat Your Vegetables: Fresh Recipes for the Single Cook" (2013).
Introduction
I am the two-time James Beard Award-winning Food and Travel editor of The Washington Post and the author of “Serve Yourself: Nightly Adventures in Cooking for One,” which Serious Eats called “a truly thoughtful, useful, and incredibly delicious book.” I was born in Georgia and raised in Texas, moving to Boston after college to work in newspapers. I was a food writer and Travel section editor at The Boston Globe before moving to Washington in 2006 to edit the Post’s Food section, for which I also writes an award-winning monthly column and occasional feature stories. My work from the Globe and Post has appeared in three editions of the “Best Food Writing” anthology. I am spending the year in North Berwick, Maine, on leave from the Post to work on two more book projects.
