Tamar Haspel

Food and Science Journalist, The Washington Post

Tamar Haspel is a journalist who’s been on the food and science beat for the best part of two decades. She writes the James Beard award-winning Washington Post column, Unearthed, which covers food supply issues: biotech, pesticides, food additives, antibiotics, organics, nutrition, and food policy. She also contributes to National Geographic, Discover, Cooking Light, Edible Cape Cod, and other publications.

Haspel is knee-deep in the public food conversation, and speaks frequently at venues where the debates about our food supply play out, including the National Academy of Sciences, food- and ag-related conferences, and SXSW. When she’s tired of the heavy lifting of journalism, she gets dirty.
