Michael Ruhlman and Tony Bourdain have announced nominees for The Golden Clog Awards–food writers aren’t forgotten, and bad food writers especially.
For the best example of twisted, repressed, or compromised “I’d rather be making lemon bundt cake with My Cat, Mr. Mufflesworth” journalist who actually HATES food and hates the people who make food even more
Alan Richman for taking a big Dump on New Orleans at the worst possible time. And for his totally disingenuous piece on celebrity chefs not being behind the stove when Alan chooses to dine;
John Mariani for continuing to be John Mariani and do what he does so well. Which is–apparently–get free stuff;
Bob Lape–”Do I have to pay for that?”:
Regina Schrambling for her deranged, embittered–yet fascinating–gastropoda.com, where she raves and rags on her former employers–(and Mario Batali) like an ex-lover-turned-bag lady.
