One of the great chroniclers of American chefs and food was lost a year ago, when Josh Ozersky died suddenly at the age of 47. We remember Josh with some of his friends and colleagues including writer and former Mr. Cutlets cohost Stefanie Cohen; Heritage Radio Network’s executive producer Jack Inslee; his collaborator in the early days of New York Magazine’s Grub Street blog, Daniel Maurer; chef Harold Moore; owner of his longtime favorite watering hole The Boxcar Lounge, Johnny Spingola; and writer Nick Solares. And we check in with Josh’s wife Danit Lidor from Portland, Oregon, where he spent the last six months of his life.
