Canucks definitely not cuckoo for COCO book
Anthony Demetre of Wild Honey in London will fill the last spot on COCO’s international list of 100 emerging chefs, bringing the U.K. total up to 18 and the Canadian count to zero. New York magazine’s food and restaurant blog, Grub Street, broke the news last week, and listed which panel member chose which up-and-coming chefs.
The blog also recommended that Shaun Smith—the Toronto writer who started the campaign to get a Canadian into COCO: 100 Emerging Culinary Stars Chosen by 10 of the World’s Greatest Chefs—crack a “Moosehead and chillax” (Smith commented that he’ll take a microbrew like Creemore over Moosehead any day). Solving disputes with a beer? How novel.
