Anyone Know Why Cooking w/ Dexter was Canned?

opinionatedchef Feb 26, 2014 04:25 PM

I am not knowledgeable about the inside shenanigans of various media. I loved Cooking w/ Dexter(CWD), Pete Well's NYTimes series on cooking w/ his young son, but it lasted only 2 years and ended in 2011. Pete is apparently now the NYTimes restnt critic. While researching something else, I read his last piece of CWD yesterday, but I didn't grok whether he was ending it or being told to end it, and/or why. Can someone enlighten me? thx much.

    I think he fled Miami during a hurricane and became a lumberjack. :)

        Because it was an embarrassment to food, parenting, and journalism? Just a guess.
