Phil's not-unfounded rant about food journalists who parachute into Cambodia and write about nothing but spiders and dried frogs has sparked a discussion touching on the alleged dearth of interesting, entertaining, and intelligent food writing (don't agree), the crisis in food writing readership (pretty much agree), and the greater appeal, to the average reader, of cute kitten photos over thoughtfully-penned screeds on any food-related topic.
To prove or disprove the latter (and because I may not have time today to write a proper post) I offer here indisputably cute photos of our latest addition. The stats will not lie. (Also, they might suggest that Dave should launch a second career in studio pet portraiture. Pugs, anyone?)
