Interview with Laura Reiley, Now with The Washington Post

Welcome to the St. Petersburg Foodies Podcast Episode 27. Our featured interview today is with Laura Reiley. Laura was the food critic for The Tampa Bay Times for ten years, and just yesterday started her new job at The Washington Post. She will no longer be a food critic, but she will be writing about food. We talk to Laura about how she judges different types of restaurants based on what they are trying to be, what she thinks of the review site Yelp, and dishonesty and misrepresentation in the food system.

Today, March 5th is Laura's birthday, so wish her a happy!

I can't help but think that one of my questions inspired one of Laura's last articles for The Tampa Bay Times—"Six ways to be a smarter diner".
