Big Deals: Danyelle Freeman's Gourmet Glossary
Ecco, an imprint of Harper Collins, has bought the North American publishing rights to an upcoming book from Danyelle Freeman (aka Restaurant Girl). Tentatively titled Gourmet Glossary, in its pages she'll "explain everything you need to know about the way we dine today."
Freeman famously clawed her way up the ladder, going from blogging about restaurants to reviewing them for the New York Daily News, where she eschews anonymity and is often accused of shilling. Somehow she's done it again (most likely to the dismay of many): she's gone from honest-to-goodness legit journalist to honest-to-goodness published author.
