Back to school for Mr. Gourmet 

Blah, blah, blah … Le Cordon Bleu, blah, blah, blah … everyone knows nothing about food except me, blah, blah, blah … you are all a bunch of ignorant simpletons who eat nothing but dead cow and couldn’t tell the difference between an apple and a potato if it rolled off your trailer trash and onto your paper plate.

Dear Mr. Gourmet (“Cut Shawn some slack,� Letters, Dec. 2-9), your arrogance is amazing. You have no idea what my background in food is or where in the world I have eaten. Do you even know who Kathy Hardesty is? You don’t sound like a New Times reader. We feel Kathy is the best regularly published food critic in the county.

Come on, Shawn put you up to this didn’t he? You both have that same attitude. What is your point? Are you saying that just because you own a restaurant you can treat people “cold and hard� because nobody understands the business?

Didn’t Restaurant Management 101 teach you how to:

1) Balance the front-of-the-house and back-of-the-house operations because both have a strong impact on quality?

2) Provide service to the customer that will make them want to return?

Maybe they only teach this at the University of Hard Knocks!
