I'm Jeffrey Steingarten, Vogue magazine's food critic. The job is being my part-time (about half) assistant. You may already know me as the ever-so-demanding author of the best-selling The Man Who Ate Everything and It Must've Been Something I Ate. Possibly as co-anchor on NY Eats on television, or as a frequent (grouchy) judge on the Food Network's program, Iron Chef. I have also won twenty James Beard and IACP awards and nominations, the Julia Child Book Award, and two World Gourmand Book Awards. Do you love food to the point of obsession? Are you are a dogged researcher-mining libraries and the Internet for facts that have slipped the attention of others? Do you cook, shop, and repair Xerox machines? Do you enjoy keeping the office, kitchen and your boss organized? Do you write clearly, and think smart even while running errands? Do you look forward to the occasional dinner at a fabulous restaurant? Are you near the start of your professional career, and willing to give a one-year commitment? The job is paid by the hour as a Vogue freelancer, receiving, as I once did, no benefits whatsoever, but expenses and free food. If this is you, fellow omnivore, please apply. In the cover letter, please tell me about your skills, if any, in each of the following areas: 1) cooking 2) academics in general 3) knowledge of food history and food science 4) practical knowledge of food products, produce, and agriculture 5) proficiency in at least one gastronomic foreign language (i.e. not Serbian or Estonian) 6) any other pursuit in which you are especially accomplished. And please don't hesitate to demonstrate your profound understanding of my published works, or admit that you occasionally chuckle when you read them.
