About Stuart Melling

My high school English teacher once told me I was the most arrogant young man she had ever met. Food criticism seemed like a natural leap. Stuart is largely fueled by Uinta Cuthhroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words he doesn't understand. Stuart is also a member of the Association of Food Journalists.
