After getting his bachelors at the University of Texas at Austin and masters at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, he moved to New York City, and now he can think of living nowhere else. After working a series of odd jobs, and playing bass in the band Mofungo, he started the world’s first food fanzine, Down the Hatch, and parlayed that into a career as restaurant critic at the Village Voice, which he has been doing for 14 years. He’s also a regular contributor to Gourmet magazine. Sietsema has a wife who's a textile designer, and a daughter who's an engineer at Google.
