      You would be good for this position. You must move to SF! I suspect it is a hoax. Does everyone advertise on Craig's List nowadays?

      1. re: Scargod

        In SF, yeah, everyone uses Craigslist.

        It's not a hoax, the listing is on as well.

    2. Sounds perfect for Ruth Reichl

        I agree that Ruth Reichl would be great for this kind of job. But I suspect that departing from the "old ways of doing things" means paying waaay less than people of her level of expertise and knowledge are accustomed to being paid. So unless someone of Ruth Reichl's stature is willing to take a deep pay cut to be on 3-inch-wide Chow videos, I'd say they're likely to choose a far cheaper, far less qualified and knowledgeable candidate.

        "...will be skeptical aboout the old ways of doing things." (????)

        And contribute to the decline and fall taking place throughout world in terms of artisanship, and food made by hand as it has been made for generations.

        This has Got to be a hoax.

            It's on CHOW's Twitter feed at so I think it's legit.

        1. They forgot the most important requirement...

          "Must look great on a website with a triangle and "Play Video" gray gradient banner across your chest." (see right column of this site)
