谁是背后的天才–大叉子:128条点评中的美国丁宁历史?

What happens when restaurant chains start opening in small towns? This unique point of view convinced Anthony Bourdain to publish the book – Grand Forks: A History of American Dinning in 128 Reviews.

Marilyn Hagerty, wrote a review on the Olive Garden back in 2012. It was a very positive take on the restaurant, but it focused more on the decor rather than the food. She was mocked mercilessly until Anthony Bourdain decided to publish her reviews.

Who is Marilyn Hagerty?

Marilyn Hagerty was a newspaper columnist for the Grand Forks Herald since 1957 when her husband; Jack Hagerty became the editor. For 27 years, she has been covering the restaurant scene in Grand Forks, North Dakota. She has been writing reviews for several restaurants in the area. (Source: 噬魂)

She became famous in 2012 in her oddly positive review of the Olive Garden. Bourdain calls her work a sincere and genuine reportage of food that people don’t really see or talk about. He goes on to describing how Marilyn is never mean even when the situation calls for it, she will struggle to find something nice to say about a place she clearly dislikes. Her son, who writes obituaries, also describes his mother as a very kind woman who will never say anything bad. That if she is displeased with the food or service, she will talk about the decor.

What is the Olive Garden Review About?

If you haven’t read the review yet, you will find it 点击此处. In a nutshell, the review was overwhelmingly positive. Now, the reason why this was problematic was the fact that writing reviews for chain restaurants weren’t as respected amongst food critics.

Her rise to fame started when another critic wrote about her review on their blog using quite a condescending tone. In a matter of hours, the post went viral and Marilyn Hagerty became the talk of the town. A lot of people, especially those on Reddit, poked fun at her for how she was very enthusiastic about the Olive Garden. This was something that got out of hand but Marilyn wasn’t really affected by the mockery. She had been reviewing other chain restaurants like Taco Bell, Subway, and even McDonald’s for quite some time and is unfazed by the attention. (Source: Wavy Web Surf)

Should You Read Her Book?

After the media circus and tons of unwanted attention. The famous author and chef; Anthony Bourdain stepped and offered Marilyn Hagerty a book deal. He encourages everyone to read the book by saying: “Reading these reviews, we can see, we can watch over the course of time, who makes it and who doesn’t. And you will understand why the opening of an Olive Garden might be earnestly anticipated as an exciting and much welcome event. Her reviews, writes Bourdain, offer up a fascinating picture of dining in America, a gradual, cumulative overview of how we got from there to here.” (资源: 噬魂)

At the end of they day, people should remember how it’s different in each town. Grand Forks is not New York after all. What may be common in big cities may seem grand and sophisticated in others.

  1. 光滑人

    由于我没有看到任何发布者,因此这是该死的评论:

    经过漫长的等待,橄榄园在大福克斯(Grand Forks)开业之后,二月的排队很长。 新奇事物正在慢慢消失,但是稳定的追随者证明了热烈的欢迎。

    我第一次访问Olive Garden是在午后,所以我可以肯定会进去。早餐后,我觉得晚午餐会很时髦。

    这个地方令人印象深刻。 它采用托斯卡纳农舍风格建造,并设有温馨的入口。 有等待者的座位。

    我的展位在厨房附近,我看着服务员穿着白衬衫,领带,黑色长裤和围裙,上面装饰着金色毛巾。 他们正忙着中午,点菜,做面包和意大利面。

    自从我在法戈(Fargo)的旧橄榄园(Olive Garden)进餐以来已经有几年了,所以我研究了两种可管理的菜单,包括开胃菜,汤和沙拉,烤三明治,比萨,经典菜肴,鸡肉和海鲜以及意大利面。

    最后,我问服务器我会建议什么。 她建议鸡肉阿尔弗雷多(Alfredo),我同意了。 我喝了水而不是她建议的覆盆子柠檬水。

    她首先给我带来了熟悉的Olive Garden色拉碗,上面放有青菜,胡椒,洋葱圈,是的-几个黑橄榄。 随之而来的是一盘带有两个长而温暖的面包棒的盘子。

    鸡肉阿尔弗雷多(Alfredo)($ 10.95)在寒冷的天气里既温暖又舒适。 这部分很慷慨。 我的服务器已准备好帕尔马干酪。

    吃的时候,我注意到花瓶和花槽在壁架上有永久的花架。 有几个用餐区,带拱形门道。 还有一个壁炉,为装饰增添了温暖。

    橄榄园在入口的右边有一个迷人的酒吧区。 该餐厅拥有完整的酒牌和酒单,提供多种选择来补充意大利美食。 非酒精饮料包括冷却器,特色咖啡和热茶。

    在炎热的夏日,我将尝试推荐的覆盆子柠檬水。

    每天下午4点之前提供自制汤,沙拉和面包棒午餐,价格为$ 6.95。

    菜单项上的橄榄枝表示低脂主菜。 有一份《花园票价营养指南》可供寻求无麸质食物的顾客使用。 对于那些对食物过敏的人,Olive Garden提供了《过敏原信息指南》。

    总而言之,这是格兰德福克斯如今最大,最美丽的餐厅。 它吸引了外地的游客以及住在这里的人们。

    Olive Garden是Darden连锁餐厅的一部分,该餐厅还经营Red Lobster。 北达科他州的主要城市约有700家餐厅,其中包括四个橄榄园。

    自1982年以来,橄榄园以其充足的空间和轻松的氛围赢得了追随者。 它以经典的千层面,意大利细面条Alfredo和鸡肉Parmigiana闻名。

    当您可以订购半个三明治时,可以喝一杯汤。

    好的,这是我的经验。 我来自英国,直到几年前我才真正体验过经典的美国“家庭餐馆/餐厅”。 我和我的妻子正去参加婚礼,有一天开车开车时感觉疲惫不堪,有点宿醉,只是想找个地方吃午饭。

    我们遇到了珀金斯。 我认为这是“小吃”的来源,但实际上我从未听说过这个地方。 我们进去,坐下,一个非常友好的老太太走了,我们点了冰茶,半三明治和一杯汤,然后坐在那儿含糊不清的美国幸福感中呆了一个小时,吃着这东西。 我们甚至吃过馅饼。

    你知道吗? 除了开玩笑,这实际上真的非常非常好。 我听说这位女士来自哪里。 只是坐在一个模糊的宿醉模糊之中,而一个好人会填满你的冰茶和东西,这有很多话可说。

    对她好。

    安东尼提到从高中开始就一直是个瘦弱的小孩,被欺负了。 青春期受到打击,他的身高达到6'4“,所以欺凌行为停止了。

    他从来没有忘记过自己脆弱。 我怀疑这给他的态度和世界观增色不少。 当然,这与他为何亲自接受这个甜蜜的老妇人的评论受到贬低有关。

  4. 你太过分了

    她从来都不是刻薄的,即使情况明显会成为借口,也是残酷的言论。 实际上,看着玛丽莲努力寻找一个关于她显然讨厌的地方的好话很有趣。 毫无疑问,她首先是一位好邻居和好公民,其次是演艺圈。

    凡是从事这项工作的人,除了哈格蒂女士所吸引的事物之外,还有她所描述的地方和人物,都具有坚强的内心。

    这本书杀死了斯纳克死了。

    Bourdain总是很乐意退后一步,指出最好的东西。

    “当我们面对一盘食物之类的简单事物时,一时或一秒钟,愤世嫉俗,厌倦,割喉,痛苦的混蛋的表情,我们都必须消失了。 ”

    “如果您与人坐下,然后说:'嘿,什么让您开心? 你喜欢吃什么? 他们会告诉您非凡的事物,其中许多与食物无关” – Anthony Bourdain

    我想他在和这个女人说话时使用了这种哲学。 大视野
