My colleague of the last 10 years, Greg Morabito, is moving to the world of book publishing. I’m too devastated to have anything quippy to say, so I’ll just give a special shout-out to some of his seminal work, including photoshopping Guy Fieri with normal hair into iconic works of art, these satires of 2014-era trendy restaurant items and 2019-era hot takes, Critical Cats, his stakeout of Sam Sifton eating a novelty fast-food item, and his essential coverage of the explosion of food-related shows and movies over the past few years.

I feel lucky that I got to enjoy his reporting, analysis, and absurdist humor over the course of a very fun and full decade.
