Has all but good taste gone to rot?


leave a comment »

Written by veteran journalist Brian O’Connor, BiteDigest, a semi-weekly blog that tracks food from the corporate boardroom to the dinner table, operates from the premise that in their pursuit of a product that tastes great, food companies don’t always adopt great practices—prompting the question, “Has all but good taste gone to rot?”

O’Connor, a former editor at Health Week, has written for Slate, NY Daily News, NY Post, Penthouse, San Francisco Weekly, The Village Voice and Men’s Journal. As a contributing editor at Men’s Fitness, his annual “Fittest and Fattest Cities” reports challenged mayor’s offices and municipalities nation-wide to get healthy—to re-examine zoning laws for fast-food restaurants, increase bicycle lanes, and offer health incentives for city employees. His work has been cited by CNN’s Sanjay Gupta, FOX News, and Hank Cardello and Doug Garr in Stuffed: An Insider’s Look at Who’s (Really) Making America Fat, among others.

He lives in Manhattan, New York City. For clips and more information, go to his website.
