Bauer Chronicles

We touched on the Visionary Chefs Series last week, and with today's five new additions (Oakes, Bertolli, Patterson, Mina, Ann Cooper), it seems Ol' Bauer is not getting a lot of love on the national level: "It's the kind of thing that's easier to see when it's the mote in someone else's eye, but Bauer ultimately does SF a disservice with this kind of parochial boosterism ... Bauer's inflation of SF chefs makes it seem as if he is writing about a much smaller town. It's cheerleading that leaves the reader with a profound sense of disembiggenment." [Chron/Gurgling Cod]
