Riddle me this, loyal readers: what do you call someone who splits his time between writing about eating barbecue and writing about not wasting food? Confused? A hypocrite? Maybe even a hero? All three, perhaps, but I just call him The Rib Rabbi.
My BBQJew.com co-author The Rib Rabbi moonlights as the author of Wasted Food.com, blogging under what I can only assume is a pseudonym, “Jonathan Bloom.” His first book, American Wasteland: How America Throws Away Nearly Half of Its Food (and What We Can Do About It), was released yesterday. That means The Rib Rabbi, or at least his alter ego Jonathan, is now a published author. Sure, it’s not as impressive as being a barbecue blogger, but it’s something.
Since BBQJew.com pays even its senior staff poorly, do The Rib Rabbi a favor and buy a copy of American Wasteland. After all, he needs some pocket change to spend on barbecue. Oh, and don’t worry, avoiding food waste and eating copious amounts of barbecue are completely compatible… right “Jonathan”?
