NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The New York Times announced today that Tamar Adler would be joining the magazine as a contributing writer. Ms. Adler will write a food column alternating with current magazine food writers Mark Bittman and Sam Sifton. Her first column, an essay on eating alone, will be featured in this weekend’s magazine.
