Is Food Writing Going the Way of All Flesh?
Sandy Oliver, Maine author of Journal of an Island Kitchen, a monthly newsletter of The Working Waterfront thinks so:
I think this woman needs to get over her pet peeves. Most of the words she mentions have been used in this manner for a long time. I've never met a home cook who referred to herself as a "chef." "Dribble" is something that takes place on a basket ball court. I will concede "source" used as a verb, but I suspect it's here to stay.
She really should consult a dictionary before going on a rant.
Definition of DRIZZLE
1: to shed or let fall in minute drops or particles
2: to make wet with minute drops : sprinkle <vegetables drizzled with olive oil>
Ms. Oliver could stand to spend a few days reading some grammar books and dictionaries. Sheesh.
