Jeffrey Steingarten is the Food Critic at Vogue magazine, for which he has won a National Magazine Award and a dozen James Beard awards and nominations. He is also the author of the best-selling The Man Who Ate Everything and It Must've Been Something I Ate, both published by Knopf and Vintage. The Man Who Ate Everything was named food book of the year by the British Guild of Food Writers and awarded the 1998 Julia Child Book Award for literary food writing. (It has also been translated into Chinese, Japanese, Dutch, German, Portuguese, British English and Czech.) Jeffrey's pieces have also appeared in The New York Times, Men's Vogue and Slate magazine. He appears regularly on Food Network.
Jeffrey trained to be a food writer at Harvard College, Harvard Law School, M.I.T. and the Harvard Lampoon. On Bastille Day, 1994, the French Republic made him a Chevalier in the Order of Merit for his writing on French gastronomy. As the man who ate everything, Chevalier Steingarten has no favorite food, scent or flavor. His favorite eating destinations are Memphis, Paris, Alba, Chengdu, San Sebastian – and his loft in New York City, where he has recently created more than a firkin of butter.
