“The greatest food writer of our time.” —Robert Goode (dad)
“Better than bacon.” —Rupa Bhattacharya (polyglot, occasional eater of stinky tofu)
“Djeydjey…ael é kumidor!” —Jayant Kairam (Harvard man, ascetic)
“A young food writer named JJ Goode. Melissa [Clark] and Andrew Friedman are the old pros, but we need to find new writers, too. I had read Serious Barbecue [by Adam Perry Lang, which Goode coauthored]. JJ also is working on [Fatty Crab chef] Zak Pelaccio’s book. JJ came in, and I think Zak didn’t trust the first writer he was working with, and JJ really got him.” — publishing God after being asked who’s co-authoring April Bloomfield’s first cookbook!
