Perhaps this is already a well-known fact among KC food folks, but I just found out that the executive food and wine editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, Michael Bauer, got his start here in Kansas City. He still has family here, he worked in his father’s butcher shop, and he was a writer for the Kansas City Star.
Now he has an online blog, Between Meals, dealing with such things as the perfect fried chicken (and he grew up on Stroud’s, so you know he knows the real deal!), and the foie gras furor.
I was born in SF, and read the Chronicle for decades, and still read several columnists and features daily online. I’m adding Mr. Bauer to my favorite links, and encourage you to check him out yourself.
