Thanks for the link!

I'm really interested in the post about the ethnicity of chefs. I suppose I've always put more weight on who is eating in the restaurant, rather than who is cooking.

Happy to oblige TS.

And yes, Monica's post on the ethnicity of chefs was fascinating, and I completely agree with your view: if the people eating are that *cuisine's* ethnic group, that's a much better indicator that the food is not just good, but "true to form." Great insight.

I always get quite distracted wandering through your Friday links, and thought I really should tell you how much I enjoy them. You seem to have a knack for picking a wide array of interesting stuff. I really enjoyed the Paleo Parents site and their dilemma was good for me to read and the mail order bride story was interesting.
