Jenn Harris is deputy editor of the Los Angeles Times Food section, former host of the “Forkin’ Amazing” food radio show on TradioV.com, and a happy hour enthusiast on the never-ending quest for her next big bite and stiff cocktail. She’s also written for the Image, Travel and Calendar sections. You can catch her slurping boat noodles in Thai town, at a taco truck trying to pronounce al pastor in her head, or downing an order of fried chicken the size of her crush on Anthony Bourdain. But before you write her off as the worst eater ever, you should see her massage some kale.
