Congratulations are in order for Caroline Russock. She’s the local food writer, last seen as contributor and “Cook the Book” columnist for Serious Eats (and known culinary accomplice to hot dog illustrator Hawk Krall), that was selected to fill the shoes of the Citypaper’s outgoing — actually, already gone — Food Editor and creator and overseer of the alt-weekly’s dining blog Meal Ticket, Drew Lazor. He packed his knives and went home after a commendable seven-year stint at the paper, and is now pursuing freelance opportunities. A tipster at last night’s Great Chef’s Event informed Grub of Russock’s hiring, and moments later, she confirmed it herself. She starts the new gig on Monday.
