I look hungry. My name is Helen Hollyman and I’m a food writer.

I've worn a couple of different aprons in the food game. Currently, I'm the Food Editor at VICE media (VICE.COM/Food). I've worked for Food & Wine Magazine, graced the counters and kitchen of Momofuku Milk Bar, written scripts for food television, tinkered in the test kitchens of Saveur Magazine and Food 52, burned myself on the line in a New Orleans kitchen and worked for food wizards like Mark Bittman and Amanda Hesser. I'm always scribbling words filled with grease for publications like GQ, Tasting Table, Gilt Taste and Saveur, and hosted and produced a radio show called, "U Look Hungry," on Heritage Radio Network. The more I dirty these aprons, I'm constantly reminded of one thing: everybody eats.

Despite my physical downfalls (which include the likes of heartburn, lactose intolerance and asthma brought on by zucchini, pumpkin, and the entire squash family), I keep it real to bring you good topics all about food. Yes, this is just another blog, another opinion, but if nothing else, I hope that the little glimmer of food insight I have to offer each day will provide you with confidence the next time you order that sizzling plate of Pork Belly. When you do, James Brown will descend from the heavens in a cloud to sing Hot Pants to you because you my friend, well, you look hungry.
