Nice to see the Chron Food section come up with an article with some substance. Once an outstanding section, it has degenerated into a lot of puff pieces about restaurants and wineries and random reprints from blogs. I hope some of it's former writers have landed somewhere good.

You're certainly right about the demise of the Chronicle's food section. But in this case, the article, written by food writer Tara Duggan, ran on the front page.
