Edge has written for all the major food magazines, the New York Times Magazine, and a slew of other publications. Below are details on his regular gigs.
New York Times
In March 2009 Edge began a monthly column, "United Tastes," for the New York Times Dining Section. The column explores American cuisine and its ongoing evolution. Here's the first in the series, "He Made Missouri a Chinese Province."
Edge has been the food columnist for the Oxford American since 1999. He has written of pig lips and slug burgers and other exotica. But he also writes often of race, using food as his point of entry.
Don't miss the summer 2005 Oxford American Food Issue, guest-edited by John T. Edge. Back issues available here.
Garden & Gun
In September of 2009, Edge began writing a bi-montly restaurant column for the magazine. They are reviews of a sort, focused on the people that inhabit the restaurant, as well as the food. Here's the first in the series, a profile of Dale's in Florence, Alabama.
In 2000, Edge began writing regularly for Gourmet. In 2005 he became a contributing editor. Among his favorite stories is a short history of charcoal, reported from the deserts of northern Mexico and a profile of two New Orleans oyster shuckers. He continued writing for the magazine until it ceased publication.
