Meet the Panel Dining critic Michael Mayo has been an award-winning news and sports columnist, but he calls his latest position with the Sun Sentinel/SouthFlorida.com and City & Shore magazine his dream job.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Liz Balmaseda is the food editor and dining critic for The Palm Beach Post. She has led an eclectic, 35-year career. It was as a columnist for The Miami Herald that she won the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary, for writings on Cuban-American and Haitian issues.
