Biography
Since its debut in early 2002, Food and Drink has profiled a wide range of leading companies in the food and drink industry, including divisions of McDonalds, Compass Group and White Hen Pantry. In addition, it has published news and expert advice about such vital topics as food safety and employee training.

"This industry is dynamic and exciting, and it’s been fun to cover its most important trends for the past half-decade," said Senior Food Editor Erica Burke. In the March/April 2007 issue of Food and Drink, Burke explored the growing trend of restaurants sourcing locally grown food. "That's the sort of editorial that keeps this magazine exciting," Burke said, "and we look forward to covering other developments in the next five years."

Hi Erica glad to see you on FohBoh!

Neither are new positions--Scott Hume was the ME before he was Exec ME, then Exec Editor and then Editor in Chief. The ME role has been open since Scott moved up. Now Scott is moving out and both roles are open...

Either will report to Pat Dailey, the publisher and editorial director.

Erica,

I would love to pick your brain a bit - I am a rep for Gordon Food Service in the metro Chicago area, and have a passion for raising my customers' games. I would love to get some insights from you on where the industry is going. Let me know if you would be interested in helping me out

Hi there--

Yours doesn't sound too bad either... I'm out in Oak Brook, much to my dismay. The commute is not ideal, as I live in Lincoln Park.

Actually, we use very few freelancers--there are just a few of us on staff, but we do the bulk of the writing... How about you?

Erica -

I saw that you are writing a story about food and professional social networks. I know someone involved in this industry who would be a great person to talk with.
Please contact me to discuss.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
