NYTimes Case Study on Our Own Barb Lynch and Kristin Kish

I found this article well written and it gave me alot to think about vis a vis women chefs and their continuing struggles for recognition. As a Bostonian, i appreciated the Boston people and places references as pieces in the puzzle.

Hoping many of you have read it and found it worthwhile. (It would be a shame if the old CH snarkiness darted into what i was hoping would be a civil conversation.)

          It certainly continues the seemingly deserved Todd English bashing. I did enjoy the article, though, especially the line that Lynch learned everything about how not to run a restaurant empire from English!

            Is it bashing if English throws the first Coke bottle?

              (Todd English denies this was a good NYT piece.)

                Of course not! I did say it was "seemingly deserved"! ;~)

                      Good thing we all know their sexuality now. I just wish I new what their favorite bands are and what brand of socks they like.
