Eating...Our Words must sadly announce that our intrepid food writer Robb Walsh is moving to freelance status.
While he'll no longer be a member of our full-time staff, Walsh pledges to complete his list of 100 favorite Houston dishes for us.
And don't be surprised to see the occasional blog post from him either as he tours the state while researching his next (there's always a next) cookbook. He may have some print features in store for us as well.
Walsh came to us as a two-time James Beard Award winner. During his time with us he was a finalist several times for the prestigious honor; in fact, we just received word the other day that he's a finalist again this year.
We'll be looking for a new full-time staff food writer, because Houston, after all, is a city with many restaurants and residents who eat out a lot.
We readily acknowledge there is only one Robb Walsh and we thank him for his years of service.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
