To Catch a Critic

Critic%20Eats%20Ice%20Cream.jpgSan Francisco Examiner food critic Jesse Hirsch on anonymity and disguises: "Yep, I had to take every picture off the Internet when I first got the job. My approach is simple: I dress like a regular schmo, and I switch up my appearance regularly (beard, hats, etc.) I also eat with a random mix of people, some of whom are weird enough to throw people off the scent." Also: the biggest misconception about being a critic? "That it's easy." [Art of Manliness via Eater SF]
