The Man Who Ate the Town Featured in Winston-Salem Monthly Magazine

So, I’ve known about this for a while but I’ve held off on saying anything until I had actual “proof” of it.

I was featured in the Winston-Salem Monthly Magazine this month, which is “unofficially” their food issue.

Michael Breedlove contacted me to put my two cents in about meals/dishes/etc in Winston-Salem that I just couldn’t live without. They contacted a few of my foodie friends/blogger friends and asked them the same things. Chef Travis Myers and Willows Bistro got my vote (well several of them did, but this was the one that was highlighted as “mine.”). But, that wasn’t the end of it.

Michael also interviewed me about this blog and the podcast that goes with it. So, instead of me doing a lot of “self-horn-honking” I’m just going to point you over that way, for those who aren’t subscribers to Winston-Salem Monthly, which, unfortunately, I am not. But, you should be! It’s a great little publication.

I’ve gotten a few shoutouts because of it. I’m proud of it, I must say. And, I got a Kelly Bone mention in, too!

Here’s the article. Thanks, Michael, Suzy, Jay and all others over at Winston-Salem Monthly!

The Coolest Guy in the Room Just Left

©WNYC

My favorite celebrity chef died this morning of an apparent suicide. I loved Anthony Bourdain and I wrote about it on my daily blog, Useless Things Need Love Too, today.

One thing that I didn’t mention in that blog post was how much Bourdain shaped what this blog/podcast/vlog has become. I wanted to do more interviews, bring awareness and point out my views on things. When I started out, I was just a pseudo food critic. I wasn’t very good at it. I wanted more and I want even more and much of that was how Bourdain did his shows. It was an awareness, an activist’s platform, a learning tool, a cooking show and a travel show. That’s what I want this to be more of. I don’t have the budget or means that he had but I want to make it the best I can.

But, to read more about what I said about him, please consider reading my post on the daily blog. You can read that HERE.

Thank you, Tony, for everything. Rest well, sir.
