But Where Were the Pigs-in-a-Blanket?

As we move closer and closer to the debut of Gourmet’s Diary of a Foodie, we’re starting to see more and more interest in the form of traffic to this site looking for info and mentions in the media. We’ve already mentioned that we’re looking forward to it, and it made for a big deal in the form of a hoity-toity launch party at Mario Batali’s Del Posto in New York yesterday, October 5th.
By the way, I would have posted this story earlier, but I spent the last few hours looking through my apartment for my obviously misplaced invitation to the soiree.
Fortunately for those of us who couldn’t manage so much as a nose pressed to the glass, Advertising Age sent the “Freeloader,” their man(?) about town who attends events and reports back. According to the post on their site, the event, although slightly fussy and a little long-winded, was a culinary success:
For all our grumbling tummies, lack of sparkly black outfit and utter inability to distinguish one red wine from another, we have to say that was one party the Freeloader was glad to show up for. Folks, the bar has been raised.You can get a run-down of the event (sans description of the food, which doesn’t seem to be the Freeloader’s area of expertise) from the article. For the record, I don’t think I could tell two, four and six-year-old parmesan cheese apart, either.
