My name is Jason Bell, and I’m a home cook and a dorm chef, a writer and a critic. Currently, I’m  Editor in Chief of The Columbia Review and Editor of the Parse.ly blog. I write about food and restaurant culture for the Columbia Daily Spectator, and about art, music, film, books, and travel for various publications. Other activities I enjoy besides eating include running, playing Scrabble, and gardening.
