The Waitrose Food magazine editor who quit his job over an email he wrote which joked about killing vegans has been hired by The Telegraph.

?William Sitwell made the jokes after a vegan journalist wrote to him pitching an idea about a plant-based meal series.

In response, Sitwell wrote: “Thanks for this. How about a series on killing vegans, one by one. Ways to trap them? How to interrogate them properly? Expose their hypocrisy? Force-feed them meat? Make them eat steak and drink red wine?”

Restaurant critic

Now it has been revealed that he has become a restaurant critic for The Daily Telegraph – a position he says he’s ‘very happy’ to be taking up.

He tweeted: ” Very happy to be joining the @Telegraph as a restaurant critic, writer and commentator. First column starts this Saturday in the magazine.” He added that his first review is of a plant-based meal, and will appear in the magazine this weekend.

Speaking about the appointment, Deputy Editor Jane Bruton said: “With a wealth of experience as a food critic, author, and broadcaster, he will bring a unique voice to our existing roster of talented journalists and critics.”
