Top 10 redux and Table Talk
Reading this morning's paper, I was delighted to see my post to your blog included in the "Readers talk back" box, until I saw the word "macaroons." My original post said "macarons." As perhaps you know, a macaron is a delicious French sandwich cookie made with a kind of meringue. A macaroon is a disgusting coconut thing that no self-respecting French person would touch. Is this what happens when all the proof-readers get fired? All snarking aside, though, please keep up the excellent work. ...
This was in the print edition of last week's Top 10, which appeared in today's Taste section. My policy is not to edit comments at all, which makes my life easier, but I guess it was hard for someone to let what seemed to be a error go by that would embarrass the poster.
Interestingly, this was the first time I've substituted one of my original choices for the print edition. I had completely forgotten about Cafe Normandie in Annapolis until Naptown Represent reminded me. It certainly deserves a spot.
Also in my Table Talk column in today's Taste section I talk about 13.5%, the new wine bar in Hampden, and Howard County's Restaurant Weeks.
