Happened to be on the U-T website and they wrote up a short article on KirkK and his famous blog!

    Celebrity? Ai-yah.....not even close.

    Thanks for the very kind words, but it's not like we do anything with the blog that any number of people(albiet, a somewhat obsessed person) could do. And it works as a sort of therapy for me.

    I was a bit apprehensive about doing the interview, but Erin Glass was very kind, gracious, and had a great sense of humor. It was really just the 3(I asked that Erin bring her Mom) of us chatting.

    I don't think I've ever visited this board, and would have not found this, except that Cathy let me know. And I felt I needed to post a comment since you all are some of my favorite CHers.

      Very cool write up. I've been following his blog for about six-months. It's almost an every day go-to site. At least four to five times a week. I made his shoyu chicken a few times and it's great.

      Congrats to him and FOY.

        Kudos to KirkK.

        I haven't read the article yet, but his blog has been part of my daily rotation since 2003? Uh-oh, I guess that I am a hopeless food porn lurker.

        When I asked him about how a newbie might navigate the menu to order an authentic Szechuan dinner at Ba Ren, he graciously replied with a well informed and very detailed outline.

        Any recognition by the MSM is well deserved.

          Thanks for posting that, daantaat. They had the photo and the wording up on the site last week, but no story, link, or anything!

            I must have seen the U/T piece after you did because there was a working link on it by the time I got there :-). The U/T isn't exactly the most user friendly newspaper web site around. It was really a very nice and extremely well deserved article.

              I was quite tickled when I happened across it. Kirk's really done a nice job of hitting up all the small Asian eateries in town.
