Dissin the Dish
Since it's still cold in NYC and I haven't had time to cook anything, not even a grilled cheese sandwich, I'm pointing you guys to a few interesting articles out on the net today.
First, Anthony Bourdain takes a bunch of shots at the chefs, pseduo chefs and execs over at the food network in Ruhlman's blog. Seems Mr. Bourdain isn't happy with the lack of food on food TV. Interesting takes and I agree with some of it, but wait a minute, doesn't Anthony Bourdain have his own show to promote?
Second, Do you want to run a restaurant? Slate has an interesting article about the saga over opening and closing a local coffee shop.
And lastly, something from the world of barbecue. Take a look at Get Your Grill On. It's a new, well relatively new, compilation of blogs about outdoor and live fire cooking. In the interest of full disclosure, I am the editor over there and really proud of the group of fine writer's from around the world we've assembled. Spend some time at Get Your Grill On, you'll be glad you did.
