I thought I'd post a few links to the reactions in the food world to Paula Deen:
Here's my cohort Kathleen Purvis of the Charlotte Observer's take: "Paula Deen's real crime is first-degree buffoonery."
And The New York Times had a story: "A Culinary Birthright in Dispute: Paula Deen's Words Ripple Among Southern Chefs."
Former restaurant critic, now op-ed columnist Frank Bruni with the New York Times wrote: "Paula's Worst Ingredients. "
Here's Joshua David Stein on the New York Observer: "The Sweet Taste of Paula Deen's Demise."
And if you want to see her Today Show apology, go HERE.
Then an open letter to Paula Dean by Michael Twitty on afroculinaria: go HERE.
