About The Author

A fierce love of food and twin careers in real estate and fashion taught Rose to look for the hottest item and the hottest deal. Perfect attributes for creating Cheapeatsinc.com. When friends and clients needed a great meal at a great price, she could rattle off restaurant names the way a sports nut ticks off batting averages—but with a lot more home runs. Now it’s all at Cheapeats, where you’ll find “Happiness, $25 and under.”

    Thanks for mentioning the Brooklyn Food Coalition Anniversary Party! Just wanted to note a couple of details:

    Party goes from 6:30-midnight and is at 388 Atlantic between Hoyt and Bond. The Anna you mention is Anna Lappe, author of the new book Diet for a Hot Planet. Full info here: http://brooklynfoodcoalition.ning.com/events/bfc-first-anniversary-party
