FOOD&WINE Magazine recruiting for a New Restaurant Critic

Are you a fearless foodie?

FOOD&WINE Magazine is recruiting for one of Ireland’s most critical jobs… The Restaurant Critic!

If you’re interested in writing about food and wine, love eating out, and have an evening or two to spare a month, this could be just the thing for you. Other skills are required beside the ability to eat though. Can you stick to a deadline and write flawless copy? Do you read commission instructions with a fine tooth-comb? Then FOOD&WINE Magazine is looking for you.

The magazine is considered by many to be Ireland’s Food & Wine Bible

“Despite the downturn there are still plenty of restaurants, new and old, waiting to be rated for FOOD&WINE Magazine so we need to expand our panel of restaurant critics” says Ross Golden-Bannon, Editor of the magazine.

How to Apply:
The standards are high and the competition will be tight. Submit 150 words on your favourite food experience, not a restaurant review and not forgetting why the experience ranks so high. An immediate good-bye will be said to those who don’t follow the criteria. Spelling, grammar and style are important, as well as knowledge of what’s libellous and knowing your Béarnaise from your Beaujolais would be a distinct advantage!

“We don’t count calories, we count quality.” says Ross. “We believe in substance over style and integrity over spin, so sharpen your pencils and start writing.”
