"Marijuana Fuels a New Kitchen Culture"

gloriousfood | May 19, 2010 07:15 AM

In today's NY Times:

I have to say that I was entirely puzzled by this piece. What is it about? At first, I thought it was outing chefs who smoke marijuana or chefs who did it in the kitchen or chefs who cook food for stoners. Huh?

I like several of the restaurants mentioned, but my preferences have nothing to do with the topic of this article.

Seems like a waste of valuable space (it was the lead story in today's Dining section).

Also, "In the 1980s, cocaine helped fuel the frenetic open kitchens and boisterous dining rooms that were the incubators of celebrity chef culture."
