Francis Lam is an editor at Gilt Taste. He was previously a senior food writer for Salon.com and an editor at Gourmet magazine.

Francis Lam, the features editor of Gilt Taste, is da bomb. First, he brought me a sample of the homemade tomato paste he so richly describes in this week's Last Chance Foods.
