“Is this article about PW's favorite chefs and a way
to advertise them? Most of us enjoy a gripping
article and not an ass kissing festival.

Perhaps their skills are worthy of a journalist's
time, but considering all the problems in this city,
I wonder if this story is more appropriate for the
actual food section of your paper.

Also, I only saw chefs cook with ,"love", after the
candy man showed up.

Most kitchens are gardens of resentment and
various levels of bitterness, and it is no wonder
that chefs and cooks are always looking for
a new job after a year or so.

I hope that this city gets a stronger industry, one
that produces a product which has essential
value. Food is of course very important, but most
of us get by on the basics., and don't dream of
exotic flavors like saffron.”

“Excuse my own bitterness, really i am just
jealous that I can't hack the kitchen life.

I am sure these cooks and chefs are good
at what they do an deserve accolades.”

“Hey Hoge,
Were you visited by the "candy man" before sitting down to write your whiny diatribe or were you just drunk posting? Speak for yourself--as you did ad nauseum. I'm sure every PW reader found this article about the hardworking, talented chefs of Philly a hell of a lot more interesting than the crap you wrote [and then realized, yourself, sounded asinine and recanted]. No wonder you didn't have the nads to hack "kitchen life". I doubt you can hack life at all more than a foot away from your couch, your cat and your angry keyboard.

Props to those who have managed to make a career of their art!”

“I don't have a cat or a keyboard and
yes my post was pretty asinine.

I still maintain that Chef's are not very
interesting though.”

“yes it was a comment from bitterness and's hard to be stuck in loserville and
see other people succeed.

I have resentment against chefs because
alot of the ones I worked with bullied me.

Also I have a resentment against good
looking, attractive people who talk about
depression as if they suffer like I do.

They have no idea what darkness is.”

“McGinnis takes his rage with women out on non-human animals. He feels that by dominating these animals completely, he can reclaim his masculinity. It is extremely disturbing when mutilating someones flesh becomes a form of highly romanticized male bonding.”

You Win Some, And You Adsum

On Sunday, we showed up to Adsum after brunch unannounced to take some photos of Chef Matt Levin, who had participated in a survey we'd done in our Food & Drink Issue. He happily obliged. But then we lost his answers. Here they are.
