Marcella Hazan Really Doesn't Like it When Plebeians Call Themselves 'Chefs'

Marcella Hazan, in an op-ed piece for the New York Times, was distressed (semantically) when her hairdresser referred to her electrician husband as a "chef":
“Chef” has pretty much replaced “gourmet cook” to describe anyone who cooks well. How many times over the last few days, for instance, did you hear it used to refer to [...]

New York Times Brings Confusion with 'Top Chef' Headline

The title of the story, "Another Top Chef Turns in His Michelin Stars," made me think for a second: Wait, there are multiple contestants from Top Chef with Michelin stars?

Julia Moskin on the Alinea Cookbook

Not counting the pillow-production step (the plate rests on a linen-covered pillow and emits scented air as your spoon dips into the dish), there are 22 subrecipes to make or assemble. Even if I could spare the methylcellulose, the counter space issues shut me down.

Julia Moskin on Kenny Shopsin

Clearly Julia Moskin has never eaten at Shopsin's before:
Reading about Shopsin’s is actually more fun than eating at Shopsin’s; the book provides access to the food without the yelling and the edge of fear.
