So maybe the Gazette’s Food section reports culinary news nearly six months after it happens, as if it’s brand new. But at least you can rest assured that it’s the six-month-old news that’s truly of the greatest news value, right?
Well, today’s “On Food” installment makes you wonder. At the base of the Page 1 column in the print edition, there’s a box that notes the column, headlined “Handy tool lets you zip through a corn recipe,” is sponsored by Chefs retail store, at 5070 Centennial Blvd. If you look just a few inches above that box, you learn where Teresa Farney found her “handy tool.” Any guesses?
“I found mine at Chefs retail store, 5070 Centennial Blvd., for $11.95.”
Geez, no way that sales influenced that bit of editorial, is there? We’ve asked Gazette editor Jeff Thomas for comment, and will update this post if we hear back.
