The relationship between chefs and critics has been a hot topic this year and this week, San Francisco Magazine’s Rebecca Flint Marx took an unsparing look at Michael Bauer of the San Francisco Chronicle and whether or not his boyfriend Michael Murphy’s business interests represent a conflict of interest. We talk with Rebecca about the piece and its fallout, or curious lack thereof. Then, on an otherwise quiet summer news week, we kick back and talk chefs and fishing with Harold Dieterle, and catch up with Harold on his current business endeavors.
