Are you into the celebrity cooking shows and competitions? I just read an article in the LA Times how it has changed people’s views of restaurants so much that all the cooking schools in the area are overcrowded now, and hopeful cooks can’t get jobs as fast as they would like.
Personally, I’ve looked on good meals as an adventure ever since the Times ran the restaurant reviews of Ruth Reichl, also former editor of Gourmet Magazine. If you think of it as a remarkable shared live experience, and a way to get to know your city and your companions in a wonderful new way, that’s all that, too.
From my weekly cartoon feature, Daily Special. Here’s how to get new restaurant cartoons delivered to you each week! And how to buy restaurant and food cartoons for restaurant newsletters, websites, hospitality magazines, and restaurant trade journals.
