CHERRY BOMBE 100:
The Write Stuff
As the Editor in Chief of Eater, journalist Amanda Kludt brings the food and restaurant world to life through original reporting, longform features, maps, guides, reviews, videos, and podcasts. At the same time, she has been focused on making sure Eater’s coverage and awards are more inclusive and diverse, and has pushed for the industry to follow suit. Amanda has overseen the outlet’s #MeToo investigations, including its coverage of Mario Batali, which led to the chef stepping down from his restaurant group. Prior to working at Eater, Amanda spent time at Gridskipper and Metro, and she has contributed her writing to Lucky Peach, Cherry Bombe, The Guardian, and other publications.
