About the blog & author

John Tanasychuk is a food editor and dining critic who covers the South Florida eating scene. He has written about food and dining for 23 years and traces his interest in food to his parents, both country kids, who taught him the importance of eating fresh, seasonal food. Before joining the Sun Sentinel in 1999, John spent 10 years at the Detroit Free Press as a food writer and editor, restaurant critic and assistant features editor. There's not much he doesn't eat, but ask him what his favorite foods are and he'll say garbanzo beans in any form and anything that starts with fresh, seasonal ingredients. MORE
