      It takes an adventurous palate to be a food journalist, who must
      sample and judge from a wide world of cuisines. So it's understandable
      why some chefs and foodies might be suspicious of a food editor who
      decides to cut himself from a broad swath of eating possibilities by
      becoming vegetarian.

      Indeed, vegetarianism has drawn ire from celebrity chefs like Anthony
      Bourdain, who called it "a persistent irritant to any chef worth a
      damn" and "the enemy of everything good and decent in the human
      spirit." So why did Washington Post food editor Joe Yonan risk such
      wrath by coming out as a vegetarian this week?

      "It's been a gradual process over the last few years, actually," Yonan
      tells Weekend Edition host Scott Simon.

      He was eating so many meat-centric meals on the job, he says, that he
      found himself increasingly abstaining at home.

      "It was partly health — probably initially health-driven — and then
      certainly a sense of environmentalism a bit, too," Yonan says. "But I
      really didn't set out to tell other people what they should or
      shouldn't do."
