Say what, Ruth Reichl?
The editor of Gourmet just posted this on Twitter: "Love that all of Chicago seems terrified by Alice's impending visit. Do they think the food police are about to descend, knives flashing?"
Right below her (on my screen, at least) was this tweet from chef Rick Bayless: "GO! RT GreenCityMarketRT @MPChicago: Blog: Alice Waters Is Coming! Alice Waters Is Coming!"
Just about every local food blogger and media outlet, us included, is putting the Alice word out. There's this and this, to name a few.
How Ms. Reichl mistook our salivating and swooning for shaking in the knees, we can only guess.
