Philly Mag goes in-house for food editor

Philly Mag has shaken up the masthead for its new food editor, giving the job to managing/lifestyle editor Ashley Primis, whose title will become food editor/lifestyle editor. Primis, a graduate of the California Culinary Institute, is a former cook at the Four Seasons. Janine White will become managing editor and will retain duties as executive editor of Philadelphia Home, which announce the layoffs of six people this week.

Editor Larry Platt refers to the svelte Primis as an "uncanny eater with an unmatched passion for food."

Primis' only reservation about taking the job was that she would gain weight, so Platt will allow her new schedule to start at 10 a.m. so she can get in a good workout. (If she wants to suck up to the boss, she can join him at Zarett Rehab & Fitness, the gym to the stars near Rittenhouse Square.)
