LOS ANGELES TIMES: Someone tipped us off awhile ago that food columnist Charles Perry was leaving the LAT, and today his fellow print foodies threw his retirement party, complete with doughnut smorgasbord. "While food is but one of Charlie's passions -- do a Web search under his name and you're likely to find references to medieval cuisine, long-dead languages, Haight-Ashbury, Rolling Stone magazine and even Augustus Stanley Owsley (his college roommate) -- it has, of course, been the focus of his professional life. A member of the Times staff for 18 years, Charlie has often been referred to as the wit of the Food section, with knowledge (and personal experience) covering everything from historic California pit barbecue to the finest ancient recipes for rotted barley." Perry will continue to write one-off articles for the Times. [Daily Dish]
