What were the worst things in food in 2012? I have to start off with Pete Wells's scathing review of Guy Fieri's Guy's American Kitchen and Bar which appeared in today's (11/14) New York Times. This was the worst review of a restaurant that I've ever seen the Times publish. It was so punishing that even the NBC Nightly News spotlighted it. This is what Food Network has wrought on American dining culture.
