The reason I'm a fun date? I like to drink booze and talk shit.

I don't identify as a journalist, so I'm exempt from conversations about how boring they are.

"Few restaurant critics working today seem capable of engaging with vegetables in a way that shows me they’ve ever taken them seriously before"

"An interesting point is that vegetables, we’ve seen in critique of vegan fine dining, complicate critics’ ideas about value." - @aliciakennedy

My dentist says a $1200 crown should give me 5 to 10 years, to which my response was, “Then I will be old enough to simply have no teeth.”

Keeping teeth in your mouth as you grow old should not be a luxury in this country.

Wild idea: have resto critics who are vegetarian/vegan or have extensive knowledge in cuisines that are heavily plant based so they can base opinions outside of "but is it as good as a steak?"

I wrote a proposal for a Viet cookbook in 1992 but couldn't get it published until 2006. Oct is the 15th anniversary of Into the Vietnamese Kitchen, and I'm celebrating by telling the story of how it happened— pre-social media days!

These people are either incredibly naive or lying to you. VCs and tech billionaires who don't want to raise taxes to fund social services are not going to level the economic playing field by printing private money and giving 20% of it to their friends.

The whole point is how this moment, when critics have been forced, basically, by their own constructed reality of What Good Food Is, to review a meatless meal—and that it shows they’ve never given any thought to the idea before!

Our daily barista gave me 5 pounds of carambola the other day and between jam, candy, and this, they’re finished.
