Just a short one

I came across an article by Matthew Norman (one of the telegraph’s food writers) a couple of days ago.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/foodanddrink/restaurants/10032579/What-really-makes-a-restaurant-the-best.html I’m not going to bother to go into an in depth analysis of the article because quite frankly it’s not worth my time, but it annoyed me so much that I thought I would at least summarise it here. Norman is writing about how he doesn’t view the 50 best restaurant list as a worthwhile or sensible tool, partly because it follows trends (He’s clearly been reading my blog for ideas). Fair enough, I would agree.

However, he essentially admits that he’s a hypocrite in the first paragraph. Then appears to go ahead and make his point (in an entirely serious way) having already told us why he himself thinks his argument is wrong. That would be infuriating enough, but the fact that I do agree with his general point makes me all the more angry that he’s done such a terrible job of writing about it.

Ok, rant over. Normal service shall resume again shortly...
