Yes, it is again time for the self tooting of the Cook’s cooking horn, and also time for a break the normal bitching emanating from this sexy otter of a blog.  You may remember my last post from this week where I was whining about not being chosen to take part in the DSM Magazine (or DMZ in our hearts and minds) Top Competition-ular Contest.  I wasn’t so much searching for validation within the confines of some cooking competition dreamed up and executed by most likely non-chefs (or as they like to be called, foodies), but looking for some sort of response as to how I could have been left out when I was assured by my tens of fans that they had all voted at least one time for their favorite chef (me).  Well, no official response was received BUT TODAY a little validation floated down the information pipeline.

Tacopocalypse, my vehicle for putting food in front of Des Moines’ mouths, was voted by the readers of Juice/Metromix as the #2 taco in the metro area (or DMZ).  You can read my post over at Tacopocalypse.com for more details.

Yeah, but can you make the #2 taco in the DMZ? We Can.


Thank you, Tens, for making this year an amazing time for this bearded human.

The Cook.

And this next subject has nothing to do with tacos, but just wondering what you think.


This review says many restaurant staff members see customers who use their no-corkage-fee specials as cheap and then will treat the diners worse for taking advantage of it. Do you find this to be true? I always see restaurants advertising their no-corkage-fee deals on Twitter and Facebook, and I often bring in wine to Django.
