Josh Ozersky was a great food writer because he was a great writer first and foremost.— Tom Junod (@TomJunod) May 5, 2015
It didn't matter what Josh was writing about -- his father, or a leg of lamb. You never had to wonder why he was writing it.— Tom Junod (@TomJunod) May 5, 2015

Josh Ozersky was an epic food storyteller, widely accepted as king narrator of the Age of the Hamburger, and a friend. Eat in peace, Joshy.— Ben Leventhal (@benleventhal) May 5, 2015
Josh Ozersky publicly challenged us to a duel about six years ago and we loved him for it. He'll be missed.— The Braiser (@TheBraiser) May 5, 2015
