CBC Radio: Restaurant Reviewers

Recently the food critic for the Ottawa Citizen, Anne Debrisay, was asked to leave after 20 years. This has brought up the topic of the relevancy of professional food critics now when blogging and food review sites are everywhere.

CBC Radio interviewed one of my blogger friends Don over at FoodiePrints and some Ottawa chef's to talk about the issue. Take a listen:

My thoughts are that there definitely is a place for professional food critics. I would echo Don here, the only difference is that I personally don't go 3 times to review a place - I have neither the time or the money. But I am glad to hear my practices of trying to be fair and anonymous are similar to Debrisay.
