The food and entertainment editor of (201) magazine will replace Bill Pitcher as food editor at The Record of Woodland Park.
Susan Leigh Sherrill of Montclair told other writers on Friday she is the daily newspaper's new food editor, according to the online edition of The Paramus Post.
"We had a nice chat with Susan and were pleased to learn that she had just been promoted to food editor of The Record," Mel Fabrikant reported on the weekly's site.
Sherrill opened Village Green Café and Caterers in 1989 in Ridgewood. In 2000, she sold the restaurant and embarked on a second career in community newspapers, becoming editor of The Ridgewood News in the fall of 2001. She later joined (201) magazine as food editor.
The Record, The Ridgewood News and (201) are publications of North Jersey Media Group, which is owned by the Borg family.
Sherrill hasn't been listed yet on Page 2 of the Better Living features section in The Record.

Her work appears online in the Table Talk blog:
