Toronto’s one-man tourism commission Rob Ford ventured out yesterday for a food-truck hot dog and, per usual, he was thronged by pesky reporters lying in wait. Per never, however, this time, British food critic Giles Coren came along for the outing and Ford — who recently made a major grab for the food-truck vote — refused to answer questions. Twitter, however, reveals that the hot dog was delicious, and the tasting was part of Coren’s new show, Million Dollar Critic. [National Post]
