Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

For the past week or so, I have been seeing a food review column from the newspaper I read growing up popping up all over the internet and I couldn't figure out why.  I mean, we're talking about a small-town paper and an average chain restaurant here - but after seeing this, I now know why:

I'm guessing it must be a slow news week for this to be making such a fuss, but it is still kind of funny to see a columnist I used to read so many years ago show up on national TV.  I also think, at 85 years old, it's hilarious that she mentions she had no idea what "going viral" meant and that she says "blogger" sounds like a dirty word.  Apparently she is now in NYC this week reviewing some of the city's top restaurants - which may bring another string of unintentionally funny resto reviews.

I saw this review and then I saw the news segment/ internet and I love her! I hope I'm that together and active when I'm her age :)

I'm with Sarah Louise. Don't see why the woman presenter has to sound so patronising!

This is the kind of thing that makes me love my midwestern roots. I remember when Country Kitchen came to Owatonna, Minnesota. The whole town went nuts!
