    Pretty interesting post. But I don't really understand why she would have it on a Fresno food blog. It's not that the video isn't interesting. It's more that I don't really see the average Fresnan being able to identify with a British cook giving costs in pounds or using an item like an electric kettle, which you're unlikely to find in American hotels. It's certainly entertaining, but seems to lack relevance in the context of the website.

      I think the blog gives her a chance to branch out from her column restrictions, ergo the Presidential beer party, Bourdain in SF, etc.
