So, we've hash and then re-hashed, traversed and then back-tracked up one side of the county and down the other trying to understand what makes SD tick, or fail to tick, as a food/foodie destination, and we've come to no definitive conclusion.
Well, here it is...reality TV
Did you know that according to an article in today's U/T we are a virtual breeding ground for successful contestants on reality TV cooking programs. I'm not so sure we should believe our press, but you read it and decide for yourself - http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/m...
I stopped reading after this paragraph:
If you want to cook great food, you need to eat great food. And thanks to our abundance of fresh produce, our growing mania for farm-to-table everything and our bubbling melting pot of international cuisines, San Diego is a pig-out paradise. No matter what side of the plate you’re on.
The author, Karla Peterson, is a long time Arts and Entertainment writer at the UT. She is not a food writer and to my knowledge never has been. Multi tasking at the UT is now the norm, an obvious cost cutting move by a newspaper trying to survive. I'd take the story with a grain of salt (preferably sea).
