While we can’t get much information about who started Slashfood.com, we have been able to find some information about some key people in the organization.
An article published by Thedeliciouslife.com reviewed Slashfood.com and described it as having “a huge team of contributors who range in background from stay-at-home kitchen cooks to professional chefs, from amateur blog-for-hobby-ers to professional food journalists.”
The founding editor at Slashfood.com was Deidre Woollard. Woollard appears on the list of 30 of the world’s top bloggers. She was also the founding editor of a Slashfood sister website Luxist.com, which she describes as “a luxury goods blog which was on the vanguard of luxury websites in the early blogging era, helped to fuel the trend for luxury real estate blogging.”
At one time, the editor at Slashfood was Marisa McClellan. She holds a master’s degree in writing and is the author of three books. Faith Durand of Thekitchn.com, a kitchen tips website, describes her as the owner of “a wonderfully funny and interesting video blog called Fork You!”
Another famous individual linked with Slashfood is the investigative journalist Allen Salkin. He hosted Slashfood’s video series. Salkin is also the author of the book From Scratch: Inside the Food Network.
