Let me cut to the chase, shall I?
In the world of food-writing + critiquing, there have been a couple of *cough* thousand or so individuals that like to pass of their “two-cents” in exchange for a free meal – which then leads to the literary “word of approval”. I think this cheapens the craft, don’t you? I mean, the overall layman’s approach in ascertaining a “kind truth” given by these periodicals and “bloggers” are clearly flawed, aren’t they?
Here my friends Anthony Bourdain, from the Travel Channel’s No Reservations, + author Michael Ruhlman, clear the air on why this should not have a place in our field. Thank you gentlemen, I can sleep once again.
