Author: Emily Bell

Emily Bell has been writing about really good food and really good drinks, and the really good people who produce all of it, for nearly ten years. Before becoming a food writer, Emily worked at various local delis as a teenager, and so has had the pleasure of both preparing and eating an absurd number of Italian subs and Taylor ham, egg and cheese sandwiches. As a writer—and, most emphatically, as an eater—she loves the "Jersey cornucopia" of regional classics mixed with an incredible variety of cultures and cuisines. And as a proud New Jersey native, she knows there is nothing better than a late night spent poring over a massive diner menu and finally ordering just coffee. And possibly Disco fries.
