CHEF TRASH-TALKIN' FUN

""""The only squash at the table was attached to your neck," [the chef] wrote. Rhubarb, he said, had been imported to Italy in the 13th century and formed the basis of a traditional Italian drink, Rabarbaro Zucca. "The tradition is older than Campari," he declared. "Definitely Italian, especially a Milanese tradition, again something you ignore. He finished by writing: "Go please to other restaurants in other locations, check them out but don't forget to wear first a condom on your tongue in order [to] contain the orgasm of your ignorance.""""

I chuckled at this response from a chef to a food blogger.

Do you recall any winning "chef response" zingers or -- on the other side -- notably humorous "critiques" from reviewers?

    I haven't read any of her stuff in a few years but I have a general impression of MFK Fisher as generally warm, intelligent, and capable of very civil but cutting criticism. I wish I had an example.
