Paula Deen Causes Jonathan Gold To Cringe

"Paula Deen? That's absolutely horrifying...Julia Child grew up on Pasadena Avenue, just a few blocks from the start of the parade, and practically everything Ms. Deen has done both exploits and despoils the culinary movement Child did so much to prod into being...As a food person and as a Pasadenan, I should be proud that the committee is honoring somebody in my profession...but the news makes me cringe." - L.A. Weekly critic Jonathan Gold, when asked to comment about Paula Deen being named The Grand Marshal of the 2011 Rose Parade. [Pasadena Star-News via Squid Ink]
