Julia Langbein

Julia Langbein started writing about food after her blog, The Bruni Digest, in which she reviewed the reviews of New York Times restaurant critic Frank Bruni, went viral in 2003.


She wrote for Gourmet magazine and was a regular columnist for the magazine's blog, and wrote for other outlets including New York magazine online, Gilt Taste, and Food Network magazine.  In 2013 she completed a Phd in the history of art from the University of Chicago, specializing in nineteenth-century art and newspaper culture, and was a postdoctoral fellow at Trinity College, Oxford from 2014-2018.  Her first book, entitled Laugh Lines: Caricature and Painting in Nineteenth-Century France, is under review with Bloomsbury Academic and should be out well before the earth hits the sun.  She's currently working on a book about the history of old age in visual culture. She moved to Dublin in 2017.
