I'm starting a new segment on this blog called "Talkin' Blogs." The Vocalo bloggers are experts in their fields and can answer all the pressing questions...that I have. For instance, I would ask Lee Bey: "What's that building over by there?" I would ask Jim DeRogatis: "What's that one song?" And of course, I would ask Robert Feder: "Tell me again why that dude is on the air?"
So today - I begin with my fellow James Beard award-winner, Steve Dolinsky. No big deal. You like how we rolled in 2001? Flash forward to 2010 and Dolinsky has new friends, who make t-shirts:
Graham Elliot tweeted this picture yesterday. Nice. So Steve is the perfect guy to talk to first.
I asked Steve why we give a hoot about the Michelin Guide, why Alinea is so damn expensive and why he puts headshots up at all the restaurants. Also, we talked the discipline of working in the food business (I would eat/drink everything).
