Chris Shott is the Deputy Editor covering groceries for Eat This, Not That! He has written extensively about restaurants and food culture in general, previously working as an editor at Thrillist, Food Republic, Washington City Paper and the long-gone salmon-tinted New York Observer. When he's not furiously typing, he often tries to cook. His sizzling cast iron steaks routinely set off smoke alarms at his apartment building in Brooklyn, N.Y. He is also the reigning two-time champion of his neighborhood's annual chili cook-off.
