Repeat After Me, Food is Not a Moral Issue
Michael Phelps is going to endorse Frosted Flakes. The food police object. (story here) Sheez. One more time, people. It ain't the food. It's what you do with it. I like this comment:
After all, when it comes to figuring out what's good for you, whom are you going to believe, a pasty-faced "nutrutionist" or a guy who can swim faster than a motorboat?

Amazing work is being done in butter these days. Serious Eats has a nice round up of photos.

Wine Spectator Gives Fake Restaurant Award of Excellence
Looks like a certain publication has really taken their eye off the ball.
[Robin] Goldstein, the author of The Wine Trials has a posting up on his new website describing how he invented a restaurant name, Osteria l’Intrepido, a riff on “fearless.” Then he typed up a menu (”a fun amalgamation of somewhat bumbling nouvelle-Italian recipes”) and then put together a wine list, and submitted both to Wine Spectator–along with the $250 fee. The list was approved and given an Award of Excellence.
The best part is that Mr. Goldstein included "the lowest-scoring Italian wines in Wine Spectator over the past 20 years."
