Apple on Hot Dogs and Pizza


Johnny Apple's latest article is out, discussing the best "proletarian food" of Chicago, which mostly means hot dogs and sausages. It's another terrific effort, covering everything on a bun from polish sausage to "Calvados-infused smoked duck sausage with citrus-mustard cream." Who'd a thunk that a once great political reporter turned conventional wisdom regurgitating hack would write such wonderful articles about food?

And he even tells it like it is, pronouncing the superiority of NYC's thin crust pizza over Chicago's deep dish "pizza," testifying,
I can't help agreeing with a highly regarded local chef, a lifetime Chicago resident, who told me, after imploring me not to mention him by name lest he be run out of town for his perfidy, "There are a dozen pizza-by-the-slice joints in New York that beat any pizza in Chicago hands down."
