Caplansky's- the emperor has NO clothes

I could never understand how/why Zane's smoked meat deserved such adulation

His PR spin machine is exceptional - from local scribblers to America's foodie oracles, they've all piled on with rave reviews of his artisanal smoke meat

They were swigging the same koolaid

I have eaten at both the Monarch and the new digs, several times, always spotty, and NEVER a really good SM sandwich

Corey Mintz of TorStar fame finally spilled the beans this week, the smoked meat is indedible (NO GOOD) at his own blog this week -

Just days earlier the same Mr. Mintz (this time as a Star columnist) devoted tons of attention, and heaped additional praise, on Zane's growth/success phenom- but neglected to mention that the much anticipated fleet of trucks will be distributing sub-standard fare that he wouldn't eat himself

So much for a food writer playing straight with his readership (mind you it is the Star, after all)
