LA Magazine’s food editors are having quite the television renaissance. First, Lesley Bargar Suter, head of its dining section, guest judges an episode of Hell’s Kitchen ahead of her upcoming Top Chef: Masters permanent judging gig, and now we have evidence that LA Mag’s Digest Blogger Eddie Lin might snag a seat beside Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson on Season 2 of The Taste.
As ABC seemed to indicate by conspicuously leaving them out of promotional materials for next season, Brian Malarkey and Ludo Lefebvre are out, and while we’re having a grand time speculating about who should replace them, Eddie snuck this tweet under the radar today:

Certainly sounds like he’s scored one of the permanent judging seats. Lin is also the founder of the food blog Deep End Dining, and host/judge of YouTube show Kamikaze Kitchen, which ambushes restaurant chefs with a mystery ingredient they have to prepare. Congrats on your new gig, Eddie! (We think?)
