I am detouring from my usual coverage today to write about the passing of a legend in the Philadelphia food scene. I was sad to learn that Holly Moore, the prolific and long time writer behind Holly Eats, passed away.
He was a trailblazer, a true pioneer. So authentic and genuine about his love of food and writing about food. So inspirational to me. I looked to his example on how to cover and write about the local food scene. He did it for the LOVE, not the fame. He was a blogger before there was ever any blogs!
I only met him once, but it was impactful. I wanted to hug him forever. In a growing world of vapid wannabe Insta-famous foodies, he was a gem.
WXPN’s Robert Drake wrote a very touching tribute on Facebook today.
If you have any remembrances of Holly that you’d like to share, please feel free to do so in the comments. I’d love to hear them!
