It's a snowy day, depending on where you are, and what better way to spend it than by reading about roast goose, reverse martinis, and the catty infighting that plagued the world's most prominent chefs and food writers in the 1970's?
Gearing up for bad Cinco de Mayo decisions today? You have two options: one, read this now and consider it a cautionary tale whilst pursuing your own CDM hijinks later, or two, come back to this circa your 8:00 PM hangover and take comfort in a little commiseration.
