DescriptionFood journalism is reaching a zenith of popularity and cool. Scores of people tune in to watch Anthony Bourdain search the world for something to eat. The New York Times’s food critic leaves his post and readers across the country speculate over replacements. But the tide of foodie attention has also brought us endless comment chains on Yelp! countless half-hearted blogs and other things that lead to nervous talk of the weakening of true food criticism. For some the fall of Gourmet’s print magazine in 2009 was just the beginning of the end.
