Perhaps “Sir” Irvine can take consolation in winning the Cat Cora Award for “most fame based on least actual culinary achievement” at Bourdain & Ruhlman’s irreverent 2008 Golden Clog awards . . .

I'm just wondering what part Dunkin' Donuts will play in her plan... Bourdain has some interesting (as usual) comments here
