After signing on as editor-in-chief at in late October, Adam Rapoport is making sure the foodie mag keeps a prime spot at the table by bringing some talented new faces to the Bon Appétit team. WWD’s John Koblin reports that Christine Muhlke will join Bon Appétit as an executive editor and Meghan Sutherland has been hired as the title’s deputy editor. Rapoport spoke glowingly of Muhlke when discussing his reasons for the move:
Christine is incredibly prolific as a writer and editor and is obsessively knowledgeable about every last thing going on in the food world every minute, every day. She knows the restaurant you don’t know about yet, she knows about the chefs that matter. And, I am jealous of what a great home cook home she is, which in my book is critical to being at Bon Appétit.
Prior to joining Bon Appétit, Muhlke served as the food editor at The New York Times Magazine. She will begin work at her new executive editor post on Jan. 3. Sutherland, who was previously a deputy editor at Teen Vogue, will get started at Bon Appétit on Dec. 15
