For those who missed it, Westword restaurant critic Jason Sheehan wrote a series of insightful, sometimes scathing and invariably funny posts about the IACP conference. Maggie, Lisa and I hung out with him a lot. In fact, when restaurant owner Jesse Moreales couldn’t get hold of Gourmet contributor editor Barry Estabrook, I think that he ended up settling for us…

By the way, Jason writes about handing out galleys of his book, Cooking Dirty: A Story of Life, Sex, Love and Death in the Kitchen (MacMillian). I was one of the lucky ones who got a copy. It’s like a nice healthy dose of Jason, replete with attitude and the occasional dose of savage humor from a guy who can truly write. And drink. But that’s another story…

My favorite part? That Barry Estabrook comments on the story mentioning him, stating that he was “probably in the hotel bar.” Ha!
