So, something to keep in mind — with me, flattery will get you everywhere.
That’s precisely why the magnanimous Eddie Gehman Kohan, author of Obama Foodorama, the nation’s quintessential commentary on the First Kitchen and Obama food policy, has now earned herself a series of free dinners at my restaurant, Tataki Sushi and Sake Bar.
She hit me up a while back for some comments on what we of the Obama Age could do to get things back on track for our fisheries, from both a policy and a gastronomic standpoint. Little did I know she’s take my ramblings and festoon them with praise and pomp.
The article has to do with farmed salmon (don’t eat them), American fish in general (eat them), and bluefin tuna (don’t eat them). I padded it out a bit, but that’s the jist of it. Check it out here.
But hey, like I said before, this stuff totally works on me. I’ve been all puffed up all day after reading her post and seeing that ego-pumping image she came up with. And you know what? I’m gonna post it here. Sure, maybe it’s egotistical to bathe in the glow of this kind of waaaaay-overblown tribute, but hell, how many opportunities am I ever gonna have?
Shepard Fairey — the worm has turned, my friend.
