LAT: Mary MacVean Moves To Features

Mary MacVean, web deputy and editor of the LAT Homeroom blog, has been moved to features as a staff writer specializing in food.

A memo from Asst. Managing Editor/Features Alice Short explains:

“Mary worked for almost 20 years at The Associated Press, where she collected a number of job titles, including national writer covering food and nutrition. In that job, she wrote about diet and diets; trends and farmers markets; and consumer issues such as federal food labeling laws. She profiled the likes of Julia Child and David Bouley and attended — but didn’t quite finish — Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School and edited cookbooks. Among her other titles at the AP was national editor for morning newspapers.”

Congrats, Mary!
