A Look Back: 2010, Digested

Allow us a somewhat extended metaphor: If this year were a nice meal, we'd be at that point where we've gotten the bill, perhaps even paid it, and are now enjoying the mignardises, maybe with a coffee, just sort of ... lingering. (It's almost 2011, is what we're saying.) And no matter what kind of year it's been — the miners were uplifting; the oil spill was awful; those Old Spice ads with the guy on the horse were creepy — it's been a pretty awesome one for chefs, restaurants, cooking ... food in general, really. Don't believe us? Let's all take a look at this slideshow together and see our favorite things from the year that was, shall we? (It's not a trend list, we promise!)
