May MeetingWon't Work for Food: A Restaurant Critic's Manifesto
Writing about food is a holy grail for some freelancers.
Joining the cult of barbecue, enlisting as a soldier in the taco wars. The power to declare the end of Brussels sprouts and pork belly. And all that free food, right?

Before launching fedmanwalking.com in 2011, Mike was the restaurant critic for the Austin American-Statesman.
