    Senior Editor

    As a food writer and restaurant critic for the L.A.

Before that, she was a staff writer for the Calendar section of the Los Angeles Times and the events and festivals editor for the paper’s short-lived Guide. Shatkin has been a contributor to the book EAT: Los Angeles, film editor of LAist, and a writer for such publications as American Cinematographer, Bitch, Toque, and Variety.
