Well, this is kind of like shooting (deep-fried, greasy) fish in a barrel. The Dig came out with a special edition blasting the worst food writing in Boston, and the much-loathed Phantom Gourmet has a starring role. Check out their mean quiz, which illustrates the Phantom’s penchant for disgusting foods. Lick your lips, clutch your stomach, grimace and groan while reading all about the “lavender lardo” and the “cult of the portly periwinkle.” (Wasn’t that an Encyclopedia Brown book?) Also maligned: Yelp. Ouch. Burp. [Dig]
Just how big is that trench coat?
