Eating locally

This year's Saveur 100 singled out a few food editors across the country for their exemplary work at local newspapers (#24-#28 on the list.) I was so happy to see some editors and writers gettin' some love for the contributions they've made to the local food scene -- their role is so important.

I think Saveur 's editors described the role of a local food editor just right:

"Indeed, what all our favorite editors do the best is make locals feel lucky to be eating and cooking in the place where they live."

The same could be said for local food writers, bloggers and restaurant critics. We're fortunate to have some of those here in Columbus, like Dispatch food editor Robin Davis and bloggers such as the Restaurant Widow. I hope even more crop up in the future.
