Last Call: Noma Releases A Statement On Their Norovirus Fiasco
New York Times: Monks brewing beer for sale are out. Nuns baking cheesecakes for sale are in. No, seriously. Nuns are the best.
Grub Street: Grub Street ranked the 20 most despicable things Gordon Ramsay has ever said, and we instantly regret reading the whole thing, because there are no showers in our offices, and we’ll probably never feel clean again.
Food & Wine: Food & Wine Magazine released 100 nominees for their annual Best New Chefs list for 2013, and they’re asking for your votes in naming the winners. What are you waiting for? Go clog the lines like it’s the American Idol finale.
Eater: Noma has released a statement on that Norovirus outbreak caused by an ill employee last month, and while it’s all very sincere and precautionary, we wonder if it might not be too little too late, considering the 2013 World’s 50 Best Restaurants announcement is just a month and a half away.
The Atlantic: Oh hey, guess what, shock of the century here, guys: serving “convenience foods,” ie., pre-packaged, semi-homemade nonsense, doesn’t actually save you any time. Step away from the Sandra Lee, folks.
