Author Profile

Lora Zarubin is currently Food & Wine editor for LA Times Magazine. Previously she was Food and Wine editor for House & Wine; Garden, a position she assumed at the magazine’s relaunch in 1996 and held until its close in November of 2007. She worked closely with Jay Mc Inerney on wine coverage, and initiated her signature column, “Larder,” a page of discoveries, passions, and prejudices about the best things in the world of food. In 1992, Zarubin opened her own restaurant, Lora, in Greenwich Village to rave reviews from Gourmet and the New York Times. The menus at Lora showcased Zarubin’s philosophy about food and cooking: serve the best seasonal ingredients, support local farmers, and preserve tradition. In the fall of 2003, Zarubin published I Am Almost Always Hungry (Stewart Tabori Chang), a book of culinary memories, seasonal menus, and recipes. The book won the 2004 IACP Julia Child prize for the best first cookbook published that year. (www.ahungrygirl.com)
