Influential Food Editor’s Retirement: Kristen Hare, Poynter reporter, writes in this story about a food editor at the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Lee Svitak Dean has retired after 40 years. Hare explains Dean’s favorite memory as a food editor, which is when she spent the morning with Phua and Blia Thao at their 13-acre farm in Spring Valley, Wisconsin. For 26 years, Dean’s work has been seen as more than stories about food. She has had the opportunity to experience food by learning about different cultures, having meaningful conversations with her sources and learning about the community and the people who live in it, and her work was even considered to be a big change in local food journalism. Dean’s retirement follows the departure of Nancy Stohs from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel in January, and it marks the end of a golden age of local print food sections.
