OK.. I gotta pull rank! Some of you said...Anthony Bourdain who loves the food is a jerk. CNN is full of shit. Martha Stewart, she too. Pulling RANK...I grew up in New York, lived in San Francisco for thirty years, traveled extensively in Europe, especially France where I lived for some while, and I AM THE ULTIMATE FOODIE! Here is a short LIST OF A FEW of the Great culinary experiences I have had.. in SF.. PacificCafe, Thomas Keller”s The French Laundry and Julia”s Kitchen in Napa *yes that Julia*, Alice Waters” Chez Panisse, The Wood Tavern, The Hotel Mack, and so many other great restaurants in that foodie capital of the US .. and in France, Leon de Lyon, Paul Bocuse, Cafe de la Paix, Freres Trois Gros, Cafe de Casino in Evian, so many more.. Michelin Stars abound. The last few nights in Medellin we had culinary experiences that while not as snooty or not nearly so expensive as those above, were close in quality, preparation and presentation .. 8 or 9 vs 10. I will not mention name…
