One of the best at reporting hospitality news in the traditional news pipeline is Missy Frederick, The Washington Business Journal's reporter for "Restaurants, Retail, Arts & Tourism." We run into each on the food trail as we cover stories about the industry ... me as a trade publication and Missy for the consumer press -- with the obvious business take. You will see in a link below her take on the same James Beard Dinner that I posted on August 10 and formed the basis for our current cover story in Foodservice Monthly that can be found here: Download FSM issue 0812
I've listed here a sample of her current work ... note that it is paid subscription based so I leave that decision to you regarding relevancy etc. I do remind you that like FSM, this is journalism-based news reporting not to be confused with the wild, wild west of blogasphere where the ethics/rules of reporting, paid marketing channels and commentary are still "to be determined." No guessing here ... Missy Frederick reports the news.
- Carolyn Stromberg is going from cheese consultant to cheese retailer, once her shop Righteous Cheese at Union Market opens.
- 3 Stars Brewing Company has debuted its beer locally.
- Johnny Fulchino talks about his plans for Taqueria Nacional's 14th Street NW location — and about what will take its place on Capitol Hill.
If you would like to reach Missy directly via email. I'm sure she would appreciate a scoop.
