Cornucopia

In the Beginning

By franco on 28 February, 2007

Frank Bruni, the restaurant critic of The New York Times and one of the contributors of the Diner’s Journal, once wrote that to properly discuss a restaurant, a critic must visit an establishment at least three times to get a proper review.

Great for Frank.

Us normal people neither have the enlarged stomach nor the even larger wallet to afford such an endeavour.

And thus this blog, Table for Three, Please.

Three self-proclaimed foodies on a quest to find the holy grails of the gastronomical universe, here in Manila and everywhere else we can afford to go to.

Three very different points of view on topics that have anything and everything to do with food–from the dining experience to the pleasure of cooking at home and all points in between.

Enjoy.

    Ruth Reichl (who I think came immediately before Frank Bruni) wrote something similar in Garlic and Sapphires, which I just finished: This is only the first visit. You know the drill: Never fewer than three visits, usually more. Always anonymously.

    Hi Christina,

    Hope you continue to enjoy reading us. Thanks.

    Hi Wysgal,

    I am a big fan of Ruth Reichl and of Gourmet.

    Please read this interview

    http://www.salon.com/nov96/interview961118.html

    It a bit dated but I like the fact that she is a lover food but she is able to keep it within a greater social context.

    Thanks.

    Love your blog's concept!

    As much as I really DON'T need yet another blog to read, I will gladly spend even more time online for yours. :-)
