Top Chef Loses a Fan, San Francisco Sweets Gain THC
|What's missing from this season's Top Chef? A little San Francisco magic, maybe.|
1. Carina Ost, our Top Chef chronicler, may be a devoted fan of the cooking show, but her patience with the series is wearing out. Quickfire, Bravo! Time to re-season this show. Maybe with a little extra Yigit Pura?
2. Alex Hochman posts a Q&A with Jamie Feuerman, owner of KidChow, which delivers healthful, organic meals to kids for a reasonable $5 to $7 per lunch. Hochman asks her what works, what doesn't, and whether her lunches are only for the wealthy. This, I hasten to add, doesn't go over so well. Hochman's kids may want to inspect their lunches a little extra closely for the next few days.

4. This week, SFoodie editor John Birdsall and I switched up our lineup ― he's taken over Buzz Machine, spicing it up in the process, and I launched a new column, Talking Points, in which I pass on random tasting notes that don't fit into a column as well as links to news stories that are catching the attention of food media types around the country.
5. Birdsall also interviewed Amy Sherman this week. Sherman is transforming BlackboardEats, which launched as a simple restaurant-discount site, into something much more interesting.
