Helen Rosner is an American food writer and editor. She is food correspondent for The New Yorker.[1]

From 2014 to 2017, Rosner was an editor at Eater,[2] serving as long-form features editor and later executive editor. She joined Eater after spending four years as executive digital editor at Saveur.[3][4][5] Prior to that, she was online restaurant editor for New York Magazine and an assistant cookbook editor at Workman.[6] With Raphael Brion, she co-founded the food blog Eat Me Daily, which "carved out a vital place in a crowded food blog world by being smarter, wittier, and faster than everyone else," according to Rosner's colleague, Eater co-founder Lockhart Steele.[7] Rosner and Brion initially wrote the blog under pseudonyms.[7] Rosner's essay "On Chicken Tenders," published in Guernica, won the 2016 James Beard Foundation Journalism award for Personal Essay.[8][9]

When she tweeted about a roast chicken recipe using a hair dryer to dry the chicken before cooking,[10] this drew many responses, including criticism that she responded to with details about the technique.[11]

In 2018, Rosner was nominated for the James Beard Foundation M.F.K. Fisher Distinguished Writing Award for her piece, "Christ in the Garden of Endless Breadsticks.".[12]
